zero_brent, a Python code which finds a zero of a scalar function of a scalar variable, by Richard Brent.
The method does not require the use of derivatives, and does not assume that the function is differentiable.

zero_brent is available in a C version and a C++ version and a Fortran77 version and a Fortran90 version and a MATLAB version and an Octave version and a Python version and an R version.
asa047, a Python code which minimizes a scalar function of several variables using the Nelder-Mead algorithm.
bisection_rc, a Python code which seeks a solution to the equation f(x)=0 using bisection within a user-supplied change of sign interval [a,b]. the procedure is written using reverse communication (RC).
compass_search, a Python code which seeks the minimizer of a scalar function of several variables using compass search, a direct search algorithm that does not use derivatives.
local_min_rc, a Python code which finds a local minimum of a scalar function of a scalar variable, without the use of derivative information, using reverse communication (RC), by Richard Brent.
praxis, a Python code which minimizes a scalar function of several variables, without requiring derivative information, by Richard Brent.
test_zero, a Python code which defines some test functions for which zeroes can be sought.
toms178, a Python code which optimizes a scalar functional of multiple variables using the Hooke-Jeeves method.
zero_itp, a Python code which finds a zero of a scalar function of a scalar variable, starting from a change of sign interval, using the Interpolate/Truncate/Project (ITP) method, which has faster convergence than the bisection method.
zero_rc, a Python code which seeks a solution of a scalar nonlinear equation f(x) = 0, using reverse communication (RC), by Richard Brent.
