## Degenerate root finding problem: get the first value for which f(x)>0

Degenerate root finding problem: get the first value for which f(x)>0 Question: Given a function f(x) that is zero for all values x less than a critical value c, and non-zero for values x>c. I want to approximate the critical value c using an optimization method. Because the function f(x) is expensive, I want to …
