(Constrained) minimization approach

Rootfinders based on Newtons method or its modification will run intoconsiderable trouble when presented with a problem where singularities ofthe Jacobian occur. In this case the use of unconstrained orconstrained minimization might help,since there exist minimization methods which are rather robust if the constraints gradients are linearly dependent. To use an unconstrained minimizer, choose e.g. f(x)=||F(X)||^2 (theEuclidean length squared) and minimize this with some code proposed inthe unconstrained minimization section. To use a constrained minimizer, choose simplyf==0 as an objective function and minimize this under the constraint F(x)=0.The following code works often successfully in this situation:
