Root of nonlinear function

`x = fzero(fun,x0)`

`x = fzero(fun,x0,options)`

`x = fzero(problem)`

```
[x,fval,exitflag,output]
= fzero(___)
```

The `fzero`

command
is a function file. The algorithm, created by T. Dekker,
uses a combination of bisection, secant, and inverse quadratic interpolation
methods. An Algol 60 version, with some improvements, is given in [1]. A Fortran version,
upon which `fzero`

is based, is in [2].
