As for `ridder` and `brentq`, I hardly think NR
would have a hope of copyrighting anything but
their actual code implementing these.
A classic reference should be given in any case:

Ridders, C. F. J. "A New Algorithm for Computing a
Single Root of a Real Continuous Function."
IEEE Trans. Circuits Systems 26, 979-980, 1979.
