col_deriv : bool

Specify whether the Jacobian function computes derivatives down the columns (faster, because there is no transpose operation).

xtol : float

The calculation will terminate if the relative error between two consecutive iterates is at most xtol.

maxfev : int

The maximum number of calls to the function. If zero, then 100*(N+1) is the maximum where N is the number of elements in x0.

band : tuple

If set to a two-sequence containing the number of sub- and super-diagonals within the band of the Jacobi matrix, the Jacobi matrix is considered banded (only for fprime=None).

eps : float

A suitable step length for the forward-difference approximation of the Jacobian (for fprime=None). If eps is less than the machine precision, it is assumed that the relative errors in the functions are of the order of the machine precision.

factor : float

A parameter determining the initial step bound (factor * || diag * x||). Should be in the interval (0.1, 100).

diag : sequence

N positive entries that serve as a scale factors for the variables.
