args should be a list or tuple of extra arguments to pass to func. In
python syntax, (H0) is the same thing has H0, which is a list with
four elements, so fmin_l_bfgs_b treats it as four additional
arguments, rather than one argument that is a list. You should instead
provide args= with a list or tuple of only one element. The most
readable way to do this is to write args=[H0], but if you want to use
a tuple, you should write (H0,) (that is, with a trailing comma, to
indicate that it's a tuple).
