The basic algorithm is taken from "The Minpack Project", by More', Sorensen, Garbow, Hillstrom, pages 88-111 of "Sources and Development of Mathematical Software", Wayne Cowell, editor.

This is intended as a model implementation, since it does not necessarily have many of the bells and whistles of other implementations.
