> The classes in package "analysis.solvers" could be refactored similarly to what was done
for package {{optimization}}.
> * Replace {{MaxIterationsExceededException}} with {{TooManyEvaluationsException}}:
> Apart from the class {{MaxIterationsExceededException}} being deprecated, this approach
makes it difficult to compare different algorithms: While the concept of iteration is algorithm-dependent,
the user is probably mostly interested in the number of function evaluations. 
> * Implement the method {{solve}} in the base class ({{UnivariateRealSolverImpl}}) and
define an abstract method {{doSolve}} to be implemented in derived classes. This method would
then use a new {{computeObjectiveFunction}} method that will take care of the counting of
the function evaluations.
> * Remove "protected" fields (the root is unnecessary since it is returned by {{solve}}).
Arguingly the function value is also not very useful (as we know what it should be), except
for debugging purposes (in which case, it might not be a problem to call the function's {{value}}
method once more).
> * Remove the tolerance setter (accuracy) and make the corresponding fields "final".
