ROOT 6.08/07 Reference Guide 
Interface (abstract class) for onedimensional functions providing a gradient calculation.
It implements both the ROOT::Math::IBaseFunctionOneDim and ROOT::Math::IGradientOneDim interfaces. The method ROOT::Math::IFunction::Derivative calculates the derivative and ROOT::Math::Fdf calculates the derivative and the function values at the same time. The pure private virtual method DoDerivative() must be implemented by the derived classes, while FdF is by default implemented using DoDerivative, but it can be overloaded by the derived classes to improve the efficiency in the derivative calculation.

Optimized method to evaluate at the same time the function value and derivative at a point x.
Often both value and derivatives are needed and it is often more efficient to compute them at the same time. Derived class should implement this method if performances play an important role and if it is faster to evaluate value and derivative at the same time
Implements ROOT::Math::IGradientOneDim.
