Use Newton's method to find real roots

1 | ```
newton(f, fp, x, tol = 0.001, m = 100)
``` |

`f` |
function to integrate |

`fp` |
function representing the derivative of |

`x` |
an initial estimate of the root |

`tol` |
the error tolerance |

`m` |
the maximum number of iterations |

Newton's method finds real roots of a function, but requires knowing
the function derivative. It will return when the interval between
them is less than `tol`

, the error tolerance. However, this
implementation also stops after `m`

iterations.

the real root found

Other optimz: `bisection`

,
`goldsect`

, `gradient`

,
`hillclimbing`

, `sa`

,
`secant`
