Sections are used to group an arbitrary set of variables and subsections. Starting at the root section denoted by the tilde (`~') a section tree is formed. As an example of a section an excerpt of the NumDefaults Section of Minimos-NT is given below.

{  directSolver   = no;         // Use the direct solver
   iterativeType  = "BiCGStab"; // type of iterative solver
   linearAccuracy = 1e-11;      // The relative accuracy of the linear solver
   // ...
