marqLevAlg: An algorithm for least-squares curve fitting

This algorithm provides a numerical solution to the problem of minimizing a function. This is more efficient than the Gauss-Newton-like algorithm when starting from points very far from the final minimum. A new convergence test is implemented (RDM) in addition to the usual stopping criterion : stopping rule is when the gradients are small enough in the parameters metric (GH-1G).
