How to use different solver of NonlinearSolve.jl?

I am using NonlinearSolve but have some stupid problem.

I can run the following example script:

using NonlinearSolve, StaticArrays

f(u, p) = u .* u .- p
u0 = @SVector[1.0, 1.0]
p = 2.0
probN = NonlinearProblem(f, u0, p)
sol = solve(probN, NewtonRaphson(), reltol = 1e-9)

However, when I want to use other methods, for example the trust-region method or the Broyden method, I simply change the last line to

sol = solve(probN, TrustRegion(), reltol = 1e-9)


sol = solve(probN, Broyden(), reltol = 1e-9)

But the REPL simply tells me that neither Trustregion nor Broyden is defined.
Why is that and How can I use these methods?

Also, the example code only works if u0 is static. What can I do if I want to use normal (non-static) array?

The documentation says that Broyden() is included, however, maybe you also need SimpleNonlinearSolve. You could try to install the latter package, and to add it to your code. Regarding TrustRegion(), I have no clue. EDIT: it is written in the docs that TrustRegion() is still in development.

What version do you have? Those should just work.

Thank you!
After adding using SimpleNonlinearSolve, the broyden method works.

Great. Btw.: you are more likely to get help on such topics, if you post them in the category Optimization (Mathematical).
