Strategy for handling non-convex quadratic programs
 Type: int
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -1
 Maximum value: 2

Sets the strategy for handling non-convex quadratic objectives or non-convex quadratic constraints. With setting 0, an error is reported if the original user model contains non-convex quadratic constructs. With setting 1, an error is reported if non-convex quadratic constructs could not be discarded or linearized during presolve. With setting 2, non-convex quadratic problems are solved by means of translating them into bilinear form and applying spatial branching. The default -1 setting is currently equivalent to 1, and may change in future releases to be equivalent to 2.

Note: Only affects QP, QCP, MIQP, and MIQCP models
