Edit: yep, the manual says it uses Brent (draw a secant from a to b, it intersects Ox, that is the new point, it matched with your output, well, Brent Method is a bit more complex, but that is the idea, and it should be very easy to implement a Brent(function, a, b, epsilon) to work as intended, give me some minutes for a recursive version...).
