the solver tries to find the solution "result=0" and does so by adjusting tau. i dont know what you dont understand about that. so pls be more specific... do you want to know how the algorithm works?

by the way, to me it seems there is a one-to-one mapping between p and tau,which would make it a one variable problem... which shouldnt be to difficult for any solver to analyze.
