Solve equations with fsolve nSolve

fsolve or nSolve solves numeric equations (unlike solve or proot, it is not limited to polynomial equations) of the form:

f (x) = 0,    x $\displaystyle \in$ ]a, b[

fsolve or de nSolve accepts a last optional argument, the name of an iterative algorithm to be used by the GSL solver. The different methods are explained in the following section.
