Default Storing Flow variables and Initial Condition

Can anyone guide me on relation between "Solution_Old" and "Solution" ?? When the flow is initialized are the initial conditions saved in "Solution_Old" ?? What I understand from coding pattern is that calculated flow variables are stored inside "Solution" after every iteration and then copied back to "Solution_Old" for next iteration. Please correct me if wrong??

Thank you for your interest in su2.
You are correct. This container is used to store the solution from a previous step for portions of the code that require that information, for example in CMultiGridIntegration::Smooth_Solution.
