Description: This function computes the zero of the given scalar function with the newton iteration.

The number of iterations and the zero depends on the starting values and sometimes the iteration may not converge at all. It is required to provide the function and its derivative as inline functions. The derivative of the function should not be zero at any level of iteration.
