A question about the torrc file

What is the usage of the the following options:

DataDirectory /var/lib/tor
ControlPort 9051
CookieAuthentication 1

Are they mandatory?

Thank you.

none of them is mandatory:

but suggest to set DataDirectory, otherwise

**DataDirectory** *DIR*

Store working data in DIR. Can not be changed while tor is running. (Default: ~/.tor if your home directory is not /; otherwise, @LOCALSTATEDIR@/lib/tor. On Windows, the default is your ApplicationData folder.)
