The idea of a prestrategy is :
The input to a prestrategy is a set of equations C.

and look at the list of equations
involving only one unknown (say a particular equation
has exactly one unknown ).
- S2. The user must now make a decision
about equations in (e.g.,
is a Ricatti equation so I shall
not try to simplify it, but leave it for Matlab).
Now the user declares the unknown to be known.
The user would also select the equation
as important. User selecting an equation corresponds
to adding it to the set .

Sometimes one needs a 2-prestrategy in that the
key is equations in 1 and 2 unknowns.
Another point is that the user can select
certain equations which he deems important.
The NCProcess commands give these priority over
subsequent equations when eliminating unknowns.
The point is to isolate and to minimize what the user must do.
This is the crux of a prestrategy.
