   User class for performing function minimization

   It will use the Brent Method for function minimization in a given interval.
   First, a grid search is used to bracket the minimum value
   with the a step size = (xmax-xmin)/npx. The step size
   can be controlled via the SetNpx() function. A default value of npx = 100 is used.
   The default value con be changed using the static method SetDefaultNpx.
   If the function is unimodal or if its extrema are far apart, setting the fNpx to
   a small value speeds the algorithm up many times.
   Then, Brent's method is applied on the bracketed interval.
   If the Brent method fails to converge the bracketing is repeted on the latest best estimate of the
   interval. The procedure is repeted with a maximum value (default =10) which can be set for all
   BrentRootFinder classes with the method SetDefaultNSearch

   This class is implemented from TF1::GetMinimum.

   To use the class, three steps have to be taken:
       1. Create the class.
       2. Set a function within an interval to look for the minimum.
       3. Call the Minimize function with the error parameters.

   If another minimization is to be performed, repeat the last two steps.
