/* secant.c -- secant root finding algorithm 

   The secant algorithm is a variant of the Newton algorithm with the
   derivative term replaced by a numerical estimate from the last two
   function evaluations.

   x[i+1] = x[i] - f(x[i]) / f'_est

   where f'_est = (f(x[i]) - f(x[i-1])) / (x[i] - x[i-1])

   The exact derivative is used for the initial value of f'_est.
