Table of Contents
Several tools are provided to aid finding minima and roots of functions.
Some root-finding without derivatives methods are bisection, bracket and solve, including use of TOMS 748 algorithm.
For root-finding with derivatives the methods of Newton-Raphson iteration, Halley, and Schröder are implemented.
For locating minima of a function, a Brent minima finding example is provided.
There are several fully-worked root-finding examples, including:
