My numerical package is ready

I've just completed a numerical package which consists of optimisation and root finding algorithms, which should be of use in some Orbiter projects or at some jobs.

For those who don't know, numerical optimisation is finding numerically a minimum of a function (say closest distance, time or fuel cost function), and returning argument where the minimum is achieved. OTOH root finding returns an argument for which the function value crosses 0, but in a computer program, it could be any...

Auto-Min TransX' function behind the scenes

In my recent , we now have the Auto-Min functionality, available as variables' adjustment setting.

If anybody is interested how the optimal velocities are found - it's thanks to an self invented (reinvented?) algorithm, based on the , or more precisely the , applied for Optimisation task (finding minimum), instead of finding roots, as for the case of raw bisection method.
My implementations of these methods are available below:...
