The CMS software offers 16 different solvers. They can be categorized into the following categories. The best solver to use will depend up on the disease and data you are simulating. Note that all solver names are case-insensitive in their corresponding .cfg file. If you do not specify a solver, Gillespie (SSA) will be used.
- Exact methods
- Approximate methods
- Spatial simulation methods
- Rare event probability estimation
- Exploratory methods
