fixpt(g,p0,tol,max1)
```function [k,p,err,P] = fixpt(g,p0,tol,max1)

%Input   -  g is the iteration function
%           -  p0 is the initial guess for the fixed-point
%           -  tol is the tolerance
%           -  max1 is the maximum number of iterations
%Output-  k is the number of iterations
%           -  p is the approximation to the fixed-point
%           - err is the error in the approximation
%           -  P' contains the sequence {pn}

%If g is defined as an M-file function use the @ notation
% call [k,p,err,P]=fixedpoint(@g,p0,tol,max1).
%If g is defined as an anonymous function use the
% call [k,p,err,P]=fixedpoint(g,p0,tol,max1).
