This function numerically finds the profit-maximizing output for a monopolist with linear and non-linear cost and demand curves. For guaranteed existence of feasible solution (in which both price and output are positive), a linear demand curve might be necessary.

monopoly_solver(cost = c(0, 1, 0), demand = c(0, -1, 0), q0 = 0)
``` |

`cost` |
a vector of cost curve coefficients, which must be in order: intercept of the cost function, linear term's parameter of the cost function and quadratic term's parameter of the cost function |

`demand` |
a vector of demand curve coefficients, which must be in order: intercept of inverse demand function, linear coefficient, secon degree coefficient |

`q0` |
Initial guess for monopolist's output. Defaults to 0. Strongly advise not to set this parameter unless you are very aware of what you're doing. |

A list with market price, output, profits, markup, profitrate.
