[p0,err,k,y]=newton(f,df,p0,delta,epsilon,max1)
```function [p0,err,k,y]=newton(f,df,p0,delta,epsilon,max1)

%Input    - f is the object function
%            - df is the derivative of f
%            - p0 is the initial approximation to a zero of f
%	         - delta is the tolerance for p0
%	         - epsilon is the tolerance for the function values y
%	         - max1 is the maximum number of iterations
%Output - p0 is the Newton-Raphson approximation to the zero
%	         - err is the error estimate for p0
%	         - k is the number of iterations
%	         - y is the function value f(p0)

%If f and df are defined as M-file functions use the @ notation
% call [p0,err,k,y]=newton(@f,@df,p0,delta,epsilon,max1).
%If f and df are defined as anonymous functions use the
% call  [p0,err,k,y]=newton(f,df,p0,delta,epsilon,max1).
