{Object} config Optional
The algorithm setup. Accepted properties are max_iterations of type number and precision eps.
{Number} config.max_iterations Optional, Default: 20
{Number} config.eps Optional, Default: 0.0000001
Returns:
{Number} Integral value of f over interval
Examples:
function f(x) {
  return x*x;
}

// calculates integral of f from 0 to 2.
var area1 = JXG.Math.Numerics.Romberg([0, 2], f);

// the same with an anonymous function
var area2 = JXG.Math.Numerics.Romberg([0, 2], function (x) { return x*x; });

// use trapez rule with maximum of 16 iterations or stop if the precision 0.0001 has been reached.
var area3 = JXG.Math.Numerics.Romberg([0, 2], f,
                                  {max_iterations: 16, eps: 0.0001});

<static> {Number} JXG.Math.Numerics.root(f, x, context)
Abstract method to find roots of univariate functions.
Parameters:
{function} f
We search for a solution of f(x)=0.
{Number} x
initial guess for the root, i.e. starting value.
{Object} context
optional object that is treated as "this" in the function body. This is useful if the function is a method of an object and contains a reference to its parent object via "this".
Returns:
{Number} A root of the function f.

<static> {Array} JXG.Math.Numerics.rungeKutta(butcher, x0, I, N, f)
Solve initial value problems numerically using Runge-Kutta-methods. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runge-Kutta_methods for more information on the algorithm.
Parameters:
{object|String} butcher
Butcher tableau describing the Runge-Kutta method to use. This can be either a string describing a Runge-Kutta method with a Butcher tableau predefined in JSXGraph like 'euler', 'heun', 'rk4' or an object providing the structure
{
    s: <Number>,
    A: <matrix>,
    b: <Array>,
    c: <Array>
}
which corresponds to the Butcher tableau structure shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_Runge%E2%80%93Kutta_methods&oldid=357796696
{Array} x0
Initial value vector. If the problem is of one-dimensional, the initial value also has to be given in an array.
{Array} I
Interval on which to integrate.
{Number} N
Number of evaluation points.
{function} f
Function describing the right hand side of the first order ordinary differential equation, i.e. if the ode is given by the equation
dx/dt = f(t, x(t)).
So f has to take two parameters, a number t and a vector x, and has to return a vector of the same dimension as x has.
Returns:
{Array} An array of vectors describing the solution of the ode on the given interval I.
Examples:
// A very simple autonomous system dx(t)/dt = x(t);
function f(t, x) {
    return x;
}

// Solve it with initial value x(0) = 1 on the interval [0, 2]
// with 20 evaluation points.
var data = JXG.Math.Numerics.rungeKutta('heun', [1], [0, 2], 20, f);

// Prepare data for plotting the solution of the ode using a curve.
var dataX = [];
var dataY = [];
var h = 0.1;        // (I[1] - I[0])/N  = (2-0)/20
for(var i=0; i<data.length; i++) {
    dataX[i] = i*h;
    dataY[i] = data[i][0];
}
var g = board.create('curve', [dataX, dataY], {strokeWidth:'2px'});
