- Profile histograms: See classes TProfile, TProfile2D and TProfile3D. Profile histograms are used to display the mean value of Y and its RMS for each bin in X. Profile histograms are in many cases an elegant replacement of two-dimensional histograms : the inter-relation of two measured quantities X and Y can always be visualized by a two-dimensional histogram or scatter-plot; If Y is an unknown (but single-valued) approximate function of X, this function is displayed by a profile histogram with much better precision than by a scatter-plot.

The TH*S classes also inherit from the array class TArrayS. The TH*I classes also inherit from the array class TArrayI. The TH*F classes also inherit from the array class TArrayF. The TH*D classes also inherit from the array class TArrayD.

Histograms are created by invoking one of the constructors, e.g.

TH1F *h1 = new TH1F("h1", "h1 title", 100, 0, 4.4); TH2F *h2 = new TH2F("h2", "h2 title", 40, 0, 4, 30, -3, 3);

Histograms may also be created by:

- calling the Clone function, see below
- making a projection from a 2-D or 3-D histogram, see below
- reading an histogram from a file

When an histogram is created, a reference to it is automatically added to the list of in-memory objects for the current file or directory. This default behaviour can be changed by:

h->SetDirectory(0); for the current histogram h TH1::AddDirectory(kFALSE); sets a global switch disabling the referenceWhen the histogram is deleted, the reference to it is removed from the list of objects in memory. When a file is closed, all histograms in memory associated with this file are automatically deleted.

Each histogram always contains 3 objects TAxis: fXaxis, fYaxis and fZaxis To access the axis parameters, do:

TAxis *xaxis = h->GetXaxis(); etc. Double_t binCenter = xaxis->GetBinCenter(bin), etc.See class TAxis for a description of all the access functions. The axis range is always stored internally in double precision.

bin = 0; underflow bin bin = 1; first bin with low-edge xlow INCLUDED bin = nbins; last bin with upper-edge xup EXCLUDED bin = nbins+1; overflow bin

In case of 2-D or 3-D histograms, a "global bin" number is defined. For example, assuming a 3-D histogram with (binx, biny, binz), the function

Int_t gbin = h->GetBin(binx, biny, binz);returns a global/linearized gbin number. This global gbin is useful to access the bin content/error information independently of the dimension. Note that to access the information other than bin content and errors one should use the TAxis object directly with e.g.:

Double_t xcenter = h3->GetZaxis()->GetBinCenter(27);returns the center along z of bin number 27 (not the global bin) in the 3-D histogram h3.

- call TAxis::SetBinLabel(bin, label); This can always be done before or after filling. When the histogram is drawn, bin labels will be automatically drawn. See example in $ROOTSYS/tutorials/graphs/labels1.C, labels2.C
- call to a Fill function with one of the arguments being a string, e.g.
hist1->Fill(somename, weigth); hist2->Fill(x, somename, weight); hist2->Fill(somename, y, weight); hist2->Fill(somenamex, somenamey, weight);

See example in $ROOTSYS/tutorials/hist/hlabels1.C, hlabels2.C - via TTree::Draw.
see for example $ROOTSYS/tutorials/tree/cernstaff.C
tree.Draw("Nation::Division");

where "Nation" and "Division" are two branches of a Tree.

When using the options 2 or 3 above, the labels are automatically added to the list (THashList) of labels for a given axis. By default, an axis is drawn with the order of bins corresponding to the filling sequence. It is possible to reorder the axis

- alphabetically
- by increasing or decreasing values

The reordering can be triggered via the TAxis context menu by selecting the menu item "LabelsOption" or by calling directly TH1::LabelsOption(option, axis) where

- axis may be "X", "Y" or "Z"
- option may be:
- "a" sort by alphabetic order
- ">" sort by decreasing values
- "<" sort by increasing values
- "h" draw labels horizontal
- "v" draw labels vertical
- "u" draw labels up (end of label right adjusted)
- "d" draw labels down (start of label left adjusted)

When using the option 2 above, new labels are added by doubling the current number of bins in case one label does not exist yet. When the Filling is terminated, it is possible to trim the number of bins to match the number of active labels by calling

TH1::LabelsDeflate(axis) with axis = "X", "Y" or "Z"This operation is automatic when using TTree::Draw. Once bin labels have been created, they become persistent if the histogram is written to a file or when generating the C++ code via SavePrimitive.

h1->Fill(x); h1->Fill(x, w); //fill with weight h2->Fill(x, y) h2->Fill(x, y, w) h3->Fill(x, y, z) h3->Fill(x, y, z, w)or via one of the Fill functions accepting names described above. The Fill functions compute the bin number corresponding to the given x, y or z argument and increment this bin by the given weight. The Fill functions return the bin number for 1-D histograms or global bin number for 2-D and 3-D histograms.

If TH1::Sumw2 has been called before filling, the sum of squares of weights is also stored. One can also increment directly a bin number via TH1::AddBinContent or replace the existing content via TH1::SetBinContent. To access the bin content of a given bin, do:

Double_t binContent = h->GetBinContent(bin);

By default, the bin number is computed using the current axis ranges. If the automatic binning option has been set via

h->SetBit(TH1::kCanRebin);then, the Fill Function will automatically extend the axis range to accomodate the new value specified in the Fill argument. The method used is to double the bin size until the new value fits in the range, merging bins two by two. This automatic binning options is extensively used by the TTree::Draw function when histogramming Tree variables with an unknown range.

This automatic binning option is supported for 1-D, 2-D and 3-D histograms. During filling, some statistics parameters are incremented to compute the mean value and Root Mean Square with the maximum precision.

In case of histograms of type TH1C, TH1S, TH2C, TH2S, TH3C, TH3S a check is made that the bin contents do not exceed the maximum positive capacity (127 or 32767). Histograms of all types may have positive or/and negative bin contents.

Double_t error = h->GetBinError(bin);

TF1 *myfunc = h->GetFunction("myfunc");

- Addition of an histogram to the current histogram.
- Additions of two histograms with coefficients and storage into the current histogram.
- Multiplications and Divisions are supported in the same way as additions.
- The Add, Divide and Multiply functions also exist to add, divide or multiply an histogram by a function.

Double_t chi2 = myfunc->GetChisquare(); Double_t par0 = myfunc->GetParameter(0); value of 1st parameter Double_t err0 = myfunc->GetParError(0); error on first parameter

One can:

- make a 1-D projection of a 2-D histogram or Profile see functions TH2::ProjectionX,Y, TH2::ProfileX,Y, TProfile::ProjectionX
- make a 1-D, 2-D or profile out of a 3-D histogram see functions TH3::ProjectionZ, TH3::Project3D.

One can fit these projections via:

TH2::FitSlicesX,Y, TH3::FitSlicesZ.

For example the following two statements create and fill an histogram 10000 times with a default gaussian distribution of mean 0 and sigma 1:

TH1F h1("h1", "histo from a gaussian", 100, -3, 3); h1.FillRandom("gaus", 10000);TH1::GetRandom can be used to return a random number distributed according the contents of an histogram.

TH1F *hnew = (TH1F*)h->Clone("hnew");

The same histogram can be drawn with different options in different pads. When an histogram drawn in a pad is deleted, the histogram is automatically removed from the pad or pads where it was drawn. If an histogram is drawn in a pad, then filled again, the new status of the histogram will be automatically shown in the pad next time the pad is updated. One does not need to redraw the histogram. To draw the current version of an histogram in a pad, one can use

h->DrawCopy();This makes a clone (see Clone below) of the histogram. Once the clone is drawn, the original histogram may be modified or deleted without affecting the aspect of the clone.

One can use TH1::SetMaximum() and TH1::SetMinimum() to force a particular value for the maximum or the minimum scale on the plot. (For 1-D histograms this means the y-axis, while for 2-D histograms these functions affect the z-axis).

TH1::UseCurrentStyle() can be used to change all histogram graphics attributes to correspond to the current selected style. This function must be called for each histogram. In case one reads and draws many histograms from a file, one can force the histograms to inherit automatically the current graphics style by calling before gROOT->ForceStyle().

h->GetXaxis()->SetTitle("X axis title"); h->GetYaxis()->SetTitle("Y axis title");The histogram title and the axis titles can be any TLatex string. The titles are part of the persistent histogram. It is also possible to specify the histogram title and the axis titles at creation time. These titles can be given in the "title" parameter. They must be separated by ";":

TH1F* h=new TH1F("h", "Histogram title;X Axis;Y Axis;Z Axis", 100, 0, 1);Any title can be omitted:

TH1F* h=new TH1F("h", "Histogram title;;Y Axis", 100, 0, 1); TH1F* h=new TH1F("h", ";;Y Axis", 100, 0, 1);The method SetTitle has the same syntax: h->SetTitle("Histogram title;Another X title Axis");

TFile f("histos.root", "new"); TH1F h1("hgaus", "histo from a gaussian", 100, -3, 3); h1.FillRandom("gaus", 10000); h1->Write();To read this histogram in another Root session, do:

TFile f("histos.root"); TH1F *h = (TH1F*)f.Get("hgaus");One can save all histograms in memory to the file by:

file->Write();

TH1::KolmogorovTest(): statistical test of compatibility in shape between two histograms TH1::Smooth() smooths the bin contents of a 1-d histogram TH1::Integral() returns the integral of bin contents in a given bin range TH1::GetMean(int axis) returns the mean value along axis TH1::GetRMS(int axis) returns the sigma distribution along axis TH1::GetEntries() returns the number of entries TH1::Reset() resets the bin contents and errors of an histogram

Performs the operation: this = this + c1*f1 if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated. By default, the function is computed at the centre of the bin. if option "I" is specified (1-d histogram only), the integral of the function in each bin is used instead of the value of the function at the centre of the bin. Only bins inside the function range are recomputed. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Add The function return kFALSE if the Add operation failed

Performs the operation: this = this + c1*h1 if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated. Note that if h1 has Sumw2 set, Sumw2 is automatically called for this if not already set. Note also that adding histogram with labels is not supported, histogram will be added merging them by bin number independently of the labels. For adding histogram with labels one should use TH1::Merge SPECIAL CASE (Average/Efficiency histograms) For histograms representing averages or efficiencies, one should compute the average of the two histograms and not the sum.

Other return values are specified by the 3rd parameter <br> Parameters: - h2: the second histogram - option: o "UU" = experiment experiment comparison (unweighted-unweighted) o "UW" = experiment MC comparison (unweighted-weighted).

This function has been implemented by Daniel Haertl in August 2006. Introduction: A frequently used technique in data analysis is the comparison of histograms. First suggested by Pearson [1] the test of homogeneity is used widely for comparing usual (unweighted) histograms. This paper describes the implementation modified tests for comparison of weighted and unweighted histograms and two weighted histograms [2] as well as usual Pearson's test for comparison two usual (unweighted) histograms. Overview: Comparison of two histograms expect hypotheses that two histograms represent identical distributions. To make a decision p-value should be calculated. The hypotheses of identity is rejected if the p-value is lower then some significance level. Traditionally significance levels 0.1, 0.05 and 0.01 are used. The comparison procedure should include an analysis of the residuals which is often helpful in identifying the bins of histograms responsible for a significant overall value. Residuals are the difference between bin contents and expected bin contents. Most convenient for analysis are the normalized residuals. If hypotheses of identity are valid then normalized residuals are approximately independent and identically distributed random variables having N(0,1) distribution. Analysis of residuals expect test of above mentioned properties of residuals. Notice that indirectly the analysis of residuals increase the power of test. Methods of comparison: test for comparison two (unweighted) histograms: Let us consider two histograms with the same binning and the number of bins equal to r. Let us denote the number of events in the ith bin in the first histogram as ni and as mi in the second one. The total number of events in the first histogram is equal to: and in the second histogram. The hypothesis of identity (homogeneity) [3] is that the two histograms represent random values with identical distributions. It is equivalent that there exist r constants p1,...,pr, such that and the probability of belonging to the ith bin for some measured value in both experiments is equal to pi. The number of events in the ith bin is a random variable with a distribution approximated by a Poisson probability distribution for the first histogram and with distribution for the second histogram. If the hypothesis of homogeneity is valid, then the maximum likelihood estimator of pi, i=1,...,r, is and then has approximately a distribution [3]. The comparison procedure can include an analysis of the residuals which is often helpful in identifying the bins of histograms responsible for a significant overall value. Most convenient for analysis are the adjusted (normalized) residuals [4] If hypotheses of homogeneity are valid then residuals ri are approximately independent and identically distributed random variables having N(0,1) distribution. The application of the test has restrictions related to the value of the expected frequencies Npi, Mpi, i=1,...,r. A conservative rule formulated in [5] is that all the expectations must be 1 or greater for both histograms. In practical cases when expected frequencies are not known the estimated expected frequencies can be used. Unweighted and weighted histograms comparison: A simple modification of the ideas described above can be used for the comparison of the usual (unweighted) and weighted histograms. Let us denote the number of events in the ith bin in the unweighted histogram as ni and the common weight of events in the ith bin of the weighted histogram as wi. The total number of events in the unweighted histogram is equal to and the total weight of events in the weighted histogram is equal to Let us formulate the hypothesis of identity of an unweighted histogram to a weighted histogram so that there exist r constants p1,...,pr, such that for the unweighted histogram. The weight wi is a random variable with a distribution approximated by the normal probability distribution where is the variance of the weight wi. If we replace the variance with estimate (sum of squares of weights of events in the ith bin) and the hypothesis of identity is valid, then the maximum likelihood estimator of pi,i=1,...,r, is We may then use the test statistic and it has approximately a distribution [2]. This test, as well as the original one [3], has a restriction on the expected frequencies. The expected frequencies recommended for the weighted histogram is more than 25. The value of the minimal expected frequency can be decreased down to 10 for the case when the weights of the events are close to constant. In the case of a weighted histogram if the number of events is unknown, then we can apply this recommendation for the equivalent number of events as The minimal expected frequency for an unweighted histogram must be 1. Notice that any usual (unweighted) histogram can be considered as a weighted histogram with events that have constant weights equal to 1. The variance of the difference between the weight wi and the estimated expectation value of the weight is approximately equal to: The residuals have approximately a normal distribution with mean equal to 0 and standard deviation equal to 1. Two weighted histograms comparison: Let us denote the common weight of events of the ith bin in the first histogram as w1i and as w2i in the second one. The total weight of events in the first histogram is equal to and in the second histogram. Let us formulate the hypothesis of identity of weighted histograms so that there exist r constants p1,...,pr, such that and also expectation value of weight w1i equal to W1pi and expectation value of weight w2i equal to W2pi. Weights in both the histograms are random variables with distributions which can be approximated by a normal probability distribution for the first histogram and by a distribution for the second. Here and are the variances of w1i and w2i with estimators and respectively. If the hypothesis of identity is valid, then the maximum likelihood and Least Square Method estimator of pi,i=1,...,r, is We may then use the test statistic and it has approximately a distribution [2]. The normalized or studentised residuals [6] have approximately a normal distribution with mean equal to 0 and standard deviation 1. A recommended minimal expected frequency is equal to 10 for the proposed test. Numerical examples: The method described herein is now illustrated with an example. We take a distribution defined on the interval [4,16]. Events distributed according to the formula (1) are simulated to create the unweighted histogram. Uniformly distributed events are simulated for the weighted histogram with weights calculated by formula (1). Each histogram has the same number of bins: 20. Fig.1 shows the result of comparison of the unweighted histogram with 200 events (minimal expected frequency equal to one) and the weighted histogram with 500 events (minimal expected frequency equal to 25) Fig 1. An example of comparison of the unweighted histogram with 200 events and the weighted histogram with 500 events: a) unweighted histogram; b) weighted histogram; c) normalized residuals plot; d) normal Q-Q plot of residuals. The value of the test statistic is equal to 21.09 with p-value equal to 0.33, therefore the hypothesis of identity of the two histograms can be accepted for 0.05 significant level. The behavior of the normalized residuals plot (see Fig. 1c) and the normal Q-Q plot (see Fig. 1d) of residuals are regular and we cannot identify the outliers or bins with a big influence on . The second example presents the same two histograms but 17 events was added to content of bin number 15 in unweighted histogram. Fig.2 shows the result of comparison of the unweighted histogram with 217 events (minimal expected frequency equal to one) and the weighted histogram with 500 events (minimal expected frequency equal to 25) Fig 2. An example of comparison of the unweighted histogram with 217 events and the weighted histogram with 500 events: a) unweighted histogram; b) weighted histogram; c) normalized residuals plot; d) normal Q-Q plot of residuals. The value of the test statistic is equal to 32.33 with p-value equal to 0.029, therefore the hypothesis of identity of the two histograms is rejected for 0.05 significant level. The behavior of the normalized residuals plot (see Fig. 2c) and the normal Q-Q plot (see Fig. 2d) of residuals are not regular and we can identify the outlier or bin with a big influence on .

Double_t Chisquare(TF1* f1, Option_t* option = "") const

```
Compute and return the chisquare of this histogram with respect to a function
The chisquare is computed by weighting each histogram point by the bin error
By default the full range of the histogram is used.
Use option "R" for restricting the chisquare calculation to the given range of the function
```

Double_t ComputeIntegral(Bool_t onlyPositive = false)

Compute integral (cumulative sum of bins) The result stored in fIntegral is used by the GetRandom functions. This function is automatically called by GetRandom when the fIntegral array does not exist or when the number of entries in the histogram has changed since the previous call to GetRandom. The resulting integral is normalized to 1 If the routine is called with the onlyPositive flag set an error will be produced in case of negative bin content and a NaN value returned

Double_t * GetIntegral()

Return a pointer to the array of bins integral. if the pointer fIntegral is null, TH1::ComputeIntegral is called The array dimension is the number of bins in the histograms including underflow and overflow (fNCells) the last value integral[fNCells] is set to the number of entries of the histogram

TH1 * GetCumulative(Bool_t forward = kTRUE, const char* suffix = "_cumulative") const

Return a pointer to an histogram containing the cumulative The cumulative can be computed both in the forward (default) or backward direction; the name of the new histogram is constructed from the name of this histogram with the suffix suffix appended. The cumulative distribution is formed by filling each bin of the resulting histogram with the sum of that bin and all previous (forward == kTRUE) or following (forward = kFALSE) bins. note: while cumulative distributions make sense in one dimension, you may not be getting what you expect in more than 1D because the concept of a cumulative distribution is much trickier to define; make sure you understand the order of summation before you use this method with histograms of dimension >= 2.

void DirectoryAutoAdd(TDirectory* )

Perform the automatic addition of the histogram to the given directory Note this function is called in place when the semantic requires this object to be added to a directory (I.e. when being read from a TKey or being Cloned)

Int_t DistancetoPrimitive(Int_t px, Int_t py)

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Compute distance from point px,py to a line*-*-*-*-*-* Compute the closest distance of approach from point px,py to elements of an histogram. The distance is computed in pixels units. Algorithm: Currently, this simple model computes the distance from the mouse to the histogram contour only. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Bool_t Divide(TF1* f1, Double_t c1 = 1)

Performs the operation: this = this/(c1*f1) if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated. Only bins inside the function range are recomputed. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Divide The function return kFALSE if the divide operation failed

Bool_t Divide(const TH1* h1)

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Divide this histogram by h1*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* this = this/h1 if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated. Note that if h1 has Sumw2 set, Sumw2 is automatically called for this if not already set. The resulting errors are calculated assuming uncorrelated histograms. See the other TH1::Divide that gives the possibility to optionally compute binomial errors. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Scale The function return kFALSE if the divide operation failed

Bool_t Divide(const TH1* h1, const TH1* h2, Double_t c1 = 1, Double_t c2 = 1, Option_t* option = "")

-*-*-*Replace contents of this histogram by the division of h1 by h2*-*-* this = c1*h1/(c2*h2) if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated Note that if h1 or h2 have Sumw2 set, Sumw2 is automatically called for this if not already set. The resulting errors are calculated assuming uncorrelated histograms. However, if option ="B" is specified, Binomial errors are computed. In this case c1 and c2 do not make real sense and they are ignored. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Divide Please note also that in the binomial case errors are calculated using standard binomial statistics, which means when b1 = b2, the error is zero. If you prefer to have efficiency errors not going to zero when the efficiency is 1, you must use the function TGraphAsymmErrors::BayesDivide, which will return an asymmetric and non-zero lower error for the case b1=b2. The function return kFALSE if the divide operation failed

void Draw(Option_t* option = "")

Draw this histogram with options. Histograms are drawn via the THistPainter class. Each histogram has a pointer to its own painter (to be usable in a multithreaded program). The same histogram can be drawn with different options in different pads. When an histogram drawn in a pad is deleted, the histogram is automatically removed from the pad or pads where it was drawn. If an histogram is drawn in a pad, then filled again, the new status of the histogram will be automatically shown in the pad next time the pad is updated. One does not need to redraw the histogram. To draw the current version of an histogram in a pad, one can use h->DrawCopy(); This makes a clone of the histogram. Once the clone is drawn, the original histogram may be modified or deleted without affecting the aspect of the clone. By default, TH1::Draw clears the current pad. One can use TH1::SetMaximum and TH1::SetMinimum to force a particular value for the maximum or the minimum scale on the plot. TH1::UseCurrentStyle can be used to change all histogram graphics attributes to correspond to the current selected style. This function must be called for each histogram. In case one reads and draws many histograms from a file, one can force the histograms to inherit automatically the current graphics style by calling before gROOT->ForceStyle(); See the THistPainter class for a description of all the drawing options.

TH1 * DrawCopy(Option_t* option = "") const

-*-*-*-*-*Copy this histogram and Draw in the current pad*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Once the histogram is drawn into the pad, any further modification using graphics input will be made on the copy of the histogram, and not to the original object. See Draw for the list of options -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

TH1 * DrawNormalized(Option_t* option = "", Double_t norm = 1) const

Draw a normalized copy of this histogram. A clone of this histogram is normalized to norm and drawn with option. A pointer to the normalized histogram is returned. The contents of the histogram copy are scaled such that the new sum of weights (excluding under and overflow) is equal to norm. Note that the returned normalized histogram is not added to the list of histograms in the current directory in memory. It is the user's responsability to delete this histogram. The kCanDelete bit is set for the returned object. If a pad containing this copy is cleared, the histogram will be automatically deleted See Draw for the list of options -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

TH1* FFT(TH1* h_output, Option_t* option)

This function allows to do discrete Fourier transforms of TH1 and TH2. Available transform types and flags are described below. To extract more information about the transform, use the function TVirtualFFT::GetCurrentTransform() to get a pointer to the current transform object. Parameters: 1st - histogram for the output. If a null pointer is passed, a new histogram is created and returned, otherwise, the provided histogram is used and should be big enough Options: option parameters consists of 3 parts: - option on what to return "RE" - returns a histogram of the real part of the output "IM" - returns a histogram of the imaginary part of the output "MAG"- returns a histogram of the magnitude of the output "PH" - returns a histogram of the phase of the output - option of transform type "R2C" - real to complex transforms - default "R2HC" - real to halfcomplex (special format of storing output data, results the same as for R2C) "DHT" - discrete Hartley transform real to real transforms (sine and cosine): "R2R_0", "R2R_1", "R2R_2", "R2R_3" - discrete cosine transforms of types I-IV "R2R_4", "R2R_5", "R2R_6", "R2R_7" - discrete sine transforms of types I-IV To specify the type of each dimension of a 2-dimensional real to real transform, use options of form "R2R_XX", for example, "R2R_02" for a transform, which is of type "R2R_0" in 1st dimension and "R2R_2" in the 2nd. - option of transform flag "ES" (from "estimate") - no time in preparing the transform, but probably sub-optimal performance "M" (from "measure") - some time spend in finding the optimal way to do the transform "P" (from "patient") - more time spend in finding the optimal way to do the transform "EX" (from "exhaustive") - the most optimal way is found This option should be chosen depending on how many transforms of the same size and type are going to be done. Planning is only done once, for the first transform of this size and type. Default is "ES". Examples of valid options: "Mag R2C M" "Re R2R_11" "Im R2C ES" "PH R2HC EX"

TFitResultPtr Fit(const char* formula, Option_t* option = "", Option_t* goption = "", Double_t xmin = 0, Double_t xmax = 0)

Fit histogram with function fname fname is the name of an already predefined function created by TF1 or TF2 Predefined functions such as gaus, expo and poln are automatically created by ROOT. fname can also be a formula, accepted by the linear fitter (linear parts divided by "++" sign), for example "x++sin(x)" for fitting "[0]*x+[1]*sin(x)" This function finds a pointer to the TF1 object with name fname and calls TH1::Fit(TF1 *f1,...)

TFitResultPtr Fit(TF1* f1, Option_t* option = "", Option_t* goption = "", Double_t xmin = 0, Double_t xmax = 0)

Fit histogram with function f1 Fit this histogram with function f1. The list of fit options is given in parameter option. option = "W" Set all weights to 1 for non empty bins; ignore error bars = "WW" Set all weights to 1 including empty bins; ignore error bars = "I" Use integral of function in bin, normalized by the bin volume, instead of value at bin center = "L" Use Loglikelihood method (default is chisquare method) = "WL" Use Loglikelihood method and bin contents are not integer, i.e. histogram is weighted (must have Sumw2() set) = "U" Use a User specified fitting algorithm (via SetFCN) = "Q" Quiet mode (minimum printing) = "V" Verbose mode (default is between Q and V) = "E" Perform better Errors estimation using Minos technique = "B" User defined parameter settings are used for predefined functions like "gaus", "expo", "poln", "landau". Use this option when you want to fix one or more parameters for these functions. = "M" More. Improve fit results. It uses the IMPROVE command of TMinuit (see TMinuit::mnimpr). This algorithm attempts to improve the found local minimum by searching for a better one. = "R" Use the Range specified in the function range = "N" Do not store the graphics function, do not draw = "0" Do not plot the result of the fit. By default the fitted function is drawn unless the option"N" above is specified. = "+" Add this new fitted function to the list of fitted functions (by default, any previous function is deleted) = "C" In case of linear fitting, don't calculate the chisquare (saves time) = "F" If fitting a polN, switch to minuit fitter = "S" The result of the fit is returned in the TFitResultPtr (see below Access to the Fit Result) When the fit is drawn (by default), the parameter goption may be used to specify a list of graphics options. See TH1::Draw for a complete list of these options. In order to use the Range option, one must first create a function with the expression to be fitted. For example, if your histogram has a defined range between -4 and 4 and you want to fit a gaussian only in the interval 1 to 3, you can do: TF1 *f1 = new TF1("f1", "gaus", 1, 3); histo->Fit("f1", "R"); Setting initial conditions Parameters must be initialized before invoking the Fit function. The setting of the parameter initial values is automatic for the predefined functions : poln, expo, gaus, landau. One can however disable this automatic computation by specifying the option "B". Note that if a predefined function is defined with an argument, eg, gaus(0), expo(1), you must specify the initial values for the parameters. You can specify boundary limits for some or all parameters via f1->SetParLimits(p_number, parmin, parmax); if parmin>=parmax, the parameter is fixed Note that you are not forced to fix the limits for all parameters. For example, if you fit a function with 6 parameters, you can do: func->SetParameters(0, 3.1, 1.e-6, -8, 0, 100); func->SetParLimits(3, -10, -4); func->FixParameter(4, 0); func->SetParLimits(5, 1, 1); With this setup, parameters 0->2 can vary freely Parameter 3 has boundaries [-10,-4] with initial value -8 Parameter 4 is fixed to 0 Parameter 5 is fixed to 100. When the lower limit and upper limit are equal, the parameter is fixed. However to fix a parameter to 0, one must call the FixParameter function. Note that option "I" gives better results but is slower. Changing the fitting objective function By default a chi square function is used for fitting. When option "L" (or "LL") is used a Poisson likelihood function (see note below) is used. The functions are defined in the header Fit/Chi2Func.h or Fit/PoissonLikelihoodFCN and they are implemented using the routines FitUtil::EvaluateChi2 or FitUtil::EvaluatePoissonLogL in the file math/mathcore/src/FitUtil.cxx. To specify a User defined fitting function, specify option "U" and call the following functions: TVirtualFitter::Fitter(myhist)->SetFCN(MyFittingFunction) where MyFittingFunction is of type: extern void MyFittingFunction(Int_t &npar, Double_t *gin, Double_t &f, Double_t *u, Int_t flag); Likelihood Fits When using option "L" a likelihood fit is used instead of the default chi2 square fit. The likelihood is built assuming a Poisson probability density function for each bin. This method can then be used only when the bin content represents counts (i.e. errors are sqrt(N) ). The likelihood method has the advantage of treating correctly the empty bins and use them in the fit procedure. In the chi2 method the empty bins are skipped and not considered in the fit. The likelihood method, although a bit slower, it is the recommended method in case of low bin statistics, where the chi2 method may give incorrect results. Fitting a histogram of dimension N with a function of dimension N-1 It is possible to fit a TH2 with a TF1 or a TH3 with a TF2. In this case the option "Integral" is not allowed and each cell has equal weight. Associated functions One or more object (typically a TF1*) can be added to the list of functions (fFunctions) associated to each histogram. When TH1::Fit is invoked, the fitted function is added to this list. Given an histogram h, one can retrieve an associated function with: TF1 *myfunc = h->GetFunction("myfunc"); Access to the fit result The function returns a TFitResultPtr which can hold a pointer to a TFitResult object. By default the TFitResultPtr contains only the status of the fit which is return by an automatic conversion of the TFitResultPtr to an integer. One can write in this case directly: Int_t fitStatus = h->Fit(myFunc) If the option "S" is instead used, TFitResultPtr contains the TFitResult and behaves as a smart pointer to it. For example one can do: TFitResultPtr r = h->Fit(myFunc,"S"); TMatrixDSym cov = r->GetCovarianceMatrix(); // to access the covariance matrix Double_t chi2 = r->Chi2(); // to retrieve the fit chi2 Double_t par0 = r->Parameter(0); // retrieve the value for the parameter 0 Double_t err0 = r->ParError(0); // retrieve the error for the parameter 0 r->Print("V"); // print full information of fit including covariance matrix r->Write(); // store the result in a file The fit parameters, error and chi2 (but not covariance matrix) can be retrieved also from the fitted function. If the histogram is made persistent, the list of associated functions is also persistent. Given a pointer (see above) to an associated function myfunc, one can retrieve the function/fit parameters with calls such as: Double_t chi2 = myfunc->GetChisquare(); Double_t par0 = myfunc->GetParameter(0); //value of 1st parameter Double_t err0 = myfunc->GetParError(0); //error on first parameter Access to the fit status The status of the fit can be obtained converting the TFitResultPtr to an integer independently if the fit option "S" is used or not: TFitResultPtr r = h->Fit(myFunc,opt); Int_t fitStatus = r; The fitStatus is 0 if the fit is OK (i.e no error occurred). The value of the fit status code is negative in case of an error not connected with the minimization procedure, for example when a wrong function is used. Otherwise the return value is the one returned from the minimization procedure. When TMinuit (default case) or Minuit2 are used as minimizer the status returned is : fitStatus = migradResult + 10*minosResult + 100*hesseResult + 1000*improveResult. TMinuit will return 0 (for migrad, minos, hesse or improve) in case of success and 4 in case of error (see the documentation of TMinuit::mnexcm). So for example, for an error only in Minos but not in Migrad a fitStatus of 40 will be returned. Minuit2 will return also 0 in case of success and different values in migrad minos or hesse depending on the error. See in this case the documentation of Minuit2Minimizer::Minimize for the migradResult, Minuit2Minimizer::GetMinosError for the minosResult and Minuit2Minimizer::Hesse for the hesseResult. If other minimizers are used see their specific documentation for the status code returned. For example in the case of Fumili, for the status returned see TFumili::Minimize. Excluding points Use TF1::RejectPoint inside your fitting function to exclude points within a certain range from the fit. Example: Double_t fline(Double_t *x, Double_t *par) { if (x[0] > 2.5 && x[0] < 3.5) { TF1::RejectPoint(); return 0; } return par[0] + par[1]*x[0]; } void exclude() { TF1 *f1 = new TF1("f1", "[0] +[1]*x +gaus(2)", 0, 5); f1->SetParameters(6, -1,5, 3, 0.2); TH1F *h = new TH1F("h", "background + signal", 100, 0, 5); h->FillRandom("f1", 2000); TF1 *fline = new TF1("fline", fline, 0, 5, 2); fline->SetParameters(2, -1); h->Fit("fline", "l"); } Warning when using the option "0" When selecting the option "0", the fitted function is added to the list of functions of the histogram, but it is not drawn. You can undo what you disabled in the following way: h.Fit("myFunction", "0"); // fit, store function but do not draw h.Draw(); function is not drawn const Int_t kNotDraw = 1<<9; h.GetFunction("myFunction")->ResetBit(kNotDraw); h.Draw(); // function is visible again Access to the Minimizer information during fitting This function calls, the ROOT::Fit::FitObject function implemented in HFitImpl.cxx which uses the ROOT::Fit::Fitter class. The Fitter class creates the objective fuction (e.g. chi2 or likelihood) and uses an implementation of the Minimizer interface for minimizing the function. The default minimizer is Minuit (class TMinuitMinimizer which calls TMinuit). The default can be set in the resource file in etc/system.rootrc. For example Root.Fitter: Minuit2 A different fitter can also be set via ROOT::Math::MinimizerOptions::SetDefaultMinimizer (or TVirtualFitter::SetDefaultFitter). For example ROOT::Math::MinimizerOptions::SetDefaultMinimizer("GSLMultiMin","BFGS"); will set the usdage of the BFGS algorithm of the GSL multi-dimensional minimization (implemented in libMathMore). ROOT::Math::MinimizerOptions can be used also to set other default options, like maximum number of function calls, minimization tolerance or print level. See the documentation of this class. For fitting linear functions (containing the "++" sign" and polN functions, the linear fitter is automatically initialized. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

TH1 * GetAsymmetry(TH1* h2, Double_t c2 = 1, Double_t dc2 = 0)

return an histogram containing the asymmetry of this histogram with h2, where the asymmetry is defined as: Asymmetry = (h1 - h2)/(h1 + h2) where h1 = this works for 1D, 2D, etc. histograms c2 is an optional argument that gives a relative weight between the two histograms, and dc2 is the error on this weight. This is useful, for example, when forming an asymmetry between two histograms from 2 different data sets that need to be normalized to each other in some way. The function calculates the errors asumming Poisson statistics on h1 and h2 (that is, dh = sqrt(h)). example: assuming 'h1' and 'h2' are already filled h3 = h1->GetAsymmetry(h2) then 'h3' is created and filled with the asymmetry between 'h1' and 'h2'; h1 and h2 are left intact. Note that it is the user's responsibility to manage the created histogram. code proposed by Jason Seely (seely@mit.edu) and adapted by R.Brun clone the histograms so top and bottom will have the correct dimensions: Sumw2 just makes sure the errors will be computed properly when we form sums and ratios below.

Could also be a TProfile - nprobSum maximum size of array q and size of array probSum (if given) - probSum array of positions where quantiles will be computed. if probSum is null, probSum will be computed internally and will have a size = number of bins + 1 in h. it will correspond to the quantiles calculated at the lowest edge of the histogram (quantile=0) and all the upper edges of the bins. if probSum is not null, it is assumed to contain at least nprobSum values. output - return value nq (<=nprobSum) with the number of quantiles computed - array q filled with nq quantiles Note that the Integral of the histogram is automatically recomputed if the number of entries is different of the number of entries when the integral was computed last time. In case you do not use the Fill functions to fill your histogram, but SetBinContent, you must call TH1::ComputeIntegral before calling this function. Getting quantiles q from two histograms and storing results in a TGraph, a so-called QQ-plot TGraph *gr = new TGraph(nprob); h1->GetQuantiles(nprob,gr->GetX()); h2->GetQuantiles(nprob,gr->GetY()); gr->Draw("alp"); Example: void quantiles() { // demo for quantiles const Int_t nq = 20; TH1F *h = new TH1F("h","demo quantiles",100,-3,3); h->FillRandom("gaus",5000); Double_t xq[nq]; // position where to compute the quantiles in [0,1] Double_t yq[nq]; // array to contain the quantiles for (Int_t i=0;i<nq;i++) xq[i] = Float_t(i+1)/nq; h->GetQuantiles(nq,yq,xq); //show the original histogram in the top pad TCanvas *c1 = new TCanvas("c1","demo quantiles",10,10,700,900); c1->Divide(1,2); c1->cd(1); h->Draw(); // show the quantiles in the bottom pad c1->cd(2); gPad->SetGrid(); TGraph *gr = new TGraph(nq,xq,yq); gr->SetMarkerStyle(21); gr->Draw("alp"); }

-*-*-*-*Return Global bin number corresponding to binx,y,z*-*-*-*-*-*-* 2-D and 3-D histograms are represented with a one dimensional structure. This has the advantage that all existing functions, such as GetBinContent, GetBinError, GetBinFunction work for all dimensions. In case of a TH1x, returns binx directly. see TH1::GetBinXYZ for the inverse transformation. Convention for numbering bins For all histogram types: nbins, xlow, xup bin = 0; underflow bin bin = 1; first bin with low-edge xlow INCLUDED bin = nbins; last bin with upper-edge xup EXCLUDED bin = nbins+1; overflow bin In case of 2-D or 3-D histograms, a "global bin" number is defined. For example, assuming a 3-D histogram with binx,biny,binz, the function Int_t bin = h->GetBin(binx,biny,binz); returns a global/linearized bin number. This global bin is useful to access the bin information independently of the dimension. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Double_t GetRandom() const

return a random number distributed according the histogram bin contents. This function checks if the bins integral exists. If not, the integral is evaluated, normalized to one. The integral is automatically recomputed if the number of entries is not the same then when the integral was computed. NB Only valid for 1-d histograms. Use GetRandom2 or 3 otherwise. If the histogram has a bin with negative content a NaN is returned

Double_t GetBinContent(Int_t bin) const

Double_t GetBinWithContent(Double_t c, Int_t& binx, Int_t firstx = 0, Int_t lastx = 0, Double_t maxdiff = 0) const

compute first binx in the range [firstx,lastx] for which diff = abs(bin_content-c) <= maxdiff In case several bins in the specified range with diff=0 are found the first bin found is returned in binx. In case several bins in the specified range satisfy diff <=maxdiff the bin with the smallest difference is returned in binx. In all cases the function returns the smallest difference. NOTE1: if firstx <= 0, firstx is set to bin 1 if (lastx < firstx then firstx is set to the number of bins ie if firstx=0 and lastx=0 (default) the search is on all bins.

void LabelsDeflate(Option_t* axis = "X")

Reduce the number of bins for the axis passed in the option to the number of bins having a label. The method will remove only the extra bins existing after the last "labeled" bin. Note that if there are "un-labeled" bins present between "labeled" bins they will not be removed

void LabelsInflate(Option_t* axis = "X")

void LabelsOption(Option_t* option = "h", Option_t* axis = "X")

Set option(s) to draw axis with labels option = "a" sort by alphabetic order = ">" sort by decreasing values = "<" sort by increasing values = "h" draw labels horizontal = "v" draw labels vertical = "u" draw labels up (end of label right adjusted) = "d" draw labels down (start of label left adjusted)

Bool_t RecomputeAxisLimits(TAxis& destAxis, const TAxis& anAxis)

Long64_t Merge(TCollection* list)

Add all histograms in the collection to this histogram. This function computes the min/max for the x axis, compute a new number of bins, if necessary, add bin contents, errors and statistics. If all histograms have bin labels, bins with identical labels will be merged, no matter what their order is. If overflows are present and limits are different the function will fail. The function returns the total number of entries in the result histogram if the merge is successful, -1 otherwise. IMPORTANT remark. The axis x may have different number of bins and different limits, BUT the largest bin width must be a multiple of the smallest bin width and the upper limit must also be a multiple of the bin width. Example: void atest() { TH1F *h1 = new TH1F("h1","h1",110,-110,0); TH1F *h2 = new TH1F("h2","h2",220,0,110); TH1F *h3 = new TH1F("h3","h3",330,-55,55); TRandom r; for (Int_t i=0;i<10000;i++) { h1->Fill(r.Gaus(-55,10)); h2->Fill(r.Gaus(55,10)); h3->Fill(r.Gaus(0,10)); } TList *list = new TList; list->Add(h1); list->Add(h2); list->Add(h3); TH1F *h = (TH1F*)h1->Clone("h"); h->Reset(); h->Merge(list); h->Draw(); }

Bool_t Multiply(TF1* h1, Double_t c1 = 1)

Performs the operation: this = this*c1*f1 if errors are defined (see TH1::Sumw2), errors are also recalculated. Only bins inside the function range are recomputed. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Multiply The function return kFALSE if the Multiply operation failed

Bool_t Multiply(const TH1* h1)

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Multiply this histogram by h1*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* this = this*h1 If errors of this are available (TH1::Sumw2), errors are recalculated. Note that if h1 has Sumw2 set, Sumw2 is automatically called for this if not already set. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Multiply The function return kFALSE if the Multiply operation failed

Bool_t Multiply(const TH1* h1, const TH1* h2, Double_t c1 = 1, Double_t c2 = 1, Option_t* option = "")

-*-*-*Replace contents of this histogram by multiplication of h1 by h2*-* this = (c1*h1)*(c2*h2) If errors of this are available (TH1::Sumw2), errors are recalculated. Note that if h1 or h2 have Sumw2 set, Sumw2 is automatically called for this if not already set. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Multiply The function return kFALSE if the Multiply operation failed

TH1 * Rebin(Int_t ngroup = 2, const char* newname = "", const Double_t* xbins = 0)

Rebin this histogram -case 1 xbins=0 If newname is blank (default), the current histogram is modified and a pointer to it is returned. If newname is not blank, the current histogram is not modified, and a new histogram is returned which is a Clone of the current histogram with its name set to newname. The parameter ngroup indicates how many bins of this have to be merged into one bin of the result. If the original histogram has errors stored (via Sumw2), the resulting histograms has new errors correctly calculated. examples: if h1 is an existing TH1F histogram with 100 bins h1->Rebin(); //merges two bins in one in h1: previous contents of h1 are lost h1->Rebin(5); //merges five bins in one in h1 TH1F *hnew = h1->Rebin(5,"hnew"); // creates a new histogram hnew // merging 5 bins of h1 in one bin NOTE: If ngroup is not an exact divider of the number of bins, the top limit of the rebinned histogram is reduced to the upper edge of the last bin that can make a complete group. The remaining bins are added to the overflow bin. Statistics will be recomputed from the new bin contents. -case 2 xbins!=0 A new histogram is created (you should specify newname). The parameter ngroup is the number of variable size bins in the created histogram. The array xbins must contain ngroup+1 elements that represent the low-edges of the bins. If the original histogram has errors stored (via Sumw2), the resulting histograms has new errors correctly calculated. NOTE: The bin edges specified in xbins should correspond to bin edges in the original histogram. If a bin edge in the new histogram is in the middle of a bin in the original histogram, all entries in the split bin in the original histogram will be transfered to the lower of the two possible bins in the new histogram. This is probably not what you want. examples: if h1 is an existing TH1F histogram with 100 bins Double_t xbins[25] = {...} array of low-edges (xbins[25] is the upper edge of last bin h1->Rebin(24,"hnew",xbins); //creates a new variable bin size histogram hnew

Bool_t FindNewAxisLimits(const TAxis* axis, const Double_t point, Double_t& newMin, Double_t& newMax)

finds new limits for the axis so that *point* is within the range and the limits are compatible with the previous ones (see TH1::Merge). new limits are put into *newMin* and *newMax* variables. axis - axis whose limits are to be recomputed point - point that should fit within the new axis limits newMin - new minimum will be stored here newMax - new maximum will be stored here. false if failed (e.g. if the initial axis limits are wrong or the new range is more than 2^64 times the old one).

void RebinAxis(Double_t x, TAxis* axis)

Histogram is resized along axis such that x is in the axis range. The new axis limits are recomputed by doubling iteratively the current axis range until the specified value x is within the limits. The algorithm makes a copy of the histogram, then loops on all bins of the old histogram to fill the rebinned histogram. Takes into account errors (Sumw2) if any. The algorithm works for 1-d, 2-D and 3-D histograms. The bit kCanRebin must be set before invoking this function. Ex: h->SetBit(TH1::kCanRebin);

void Scale(Double_t c1 = 1, Option_t* option = "")

-*-*-*Multiply this histogram by a constant c1*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* this = c1*this Note that both contents and errors(if any) are scaled. This function uses the services of TH1::Add IMPORTANT NOTE: If you intend to use the errors of this histogram later you should call Sumw2 before making this operation. This is particularly important if you fit the histogram after TH1::Scale One can scale an histogram such that the bins integral is equal to the normalization parameter via TH1::Scale(Double_t norm), where norm is the desired normalization divided by the integral of the histogram. If option contains "width" the bin contents and errors are divided by the bin width.

void SetDefaultBufferSize(Int_t buffersize = 1000)

static function to set the default buffer size for automatic histograms. When an histogram is created with one of its axis lower limit greater or equal to its upper limit, the function SetBuffer is automatically called with the default buffer size.

void SetDefaultSumw2(Bool_t sumw2 = kTRUE)

void SetTitle(const char* title)

Change (i.e. set) the title if title is in the form "stringt;stringx;stringy;stringz" the histogram title is set to stringt, the x axis title to stringx, the y axis title to stringy, and the z axis title to stringz. To insert the character ";" in one of the titles, one should use "#;" or "#semicolon".

void Smooth(Int_t ntimes = 1, Option_t* option = "")

Smooth bin contents of this histogram. if option contains "R" smoothing is applied only to the bins defined in the X axis range (default is to smooth all bins) Bin contents are replaced by their smooth values. Errors (if any) are not modified. the smoothing procedure is repeated ntimes (default=1)

Double_t GetMean(Int_t axis = 1) const

For axis = 1,2 or 3 returns the mean value of the histogram along X,Y or Z axis. For axis = 11, 12, 13 returns the standard error of the mean value of the histogram along X, Y or Z axis Note that the mean value/RMS is computed using the bins in the currently defined range (see TAxis::SetRange). By default the range includes all bins from 1 to nbins included, excluding underflows and overflows. To force the underflows and overflows in the computation, one must call the static function TH1::StatOverflows(kTRUE) before filling the histogram.

Double_t GetMeanError(Int_t axis = 1) const

-*-*-*-*-*-*Return standard error of mean of this histogram along the X axis*-*-*-*-* Note that the mean value/RMS is computed using the bins in the currently defined range (see TAxis::SetRange). By default the range includes all bins from 1 to nbins included, excluding underflows and overflows. To force the underflows and overflows in the computation, one must call the static function TH1::StatOverflows(kTRUE) before filling the histogram. Also note, that although the definition of standard error doesn't include the assumption of normality, many uses of this feature implicitly assume it.

Double_t GetRMS(Int_t axis = 1) const

For axis = 1,2 or 3 returns the Sigma value of the histogram along X, Y or Z axis For axis = 11, 12 or 13 returns the error of RMS estimation along X, Y or Z axis for Normal distribution Note that the mean value/sigma is computed using the bins in the currently defined range (see TAxis::SetRange). By default the range includes all bins from 1 to nbins included, excluding underflows and overflows. To force the underflows and overflows in the computation, one must call the static function TH1::StatOverflows(kTRUE) before filling the histogram. Note that this function returns the Standard Deviation (Sigma) of the distribution (not RMS). The Sigma estimate is computed as Sqrt((1/N)*(Sum(x_i-x_mean)^2)) The name "RMS" was introduced many years ago (Hbook/PAW times). We kept the name for continuity.

Double_t GetRMSError(Int_t axis = 1) const

Return error of RMS estimation for Normal distribution Note that the mean value/RMS is computed using the bins in the currently defined range (see TAxis::SetRange). By default the range includes all bins from 1 to nbins included, excluding underflows and overflows. To force the underflows and overflows in the computation, one must call the static function TH1::StatOverflows(kTRUE) before filling the histogram. Value returned is standard deviation of sample standard deviation. Note that it is an approximated value which is valid only in the case that the original data distribution is Normal. The correct one would require the 4-th momentum value, which cannot be accurately estimated from an histogram since the x-information for all entries is not kept.

Double_t GetSkewness(Int_t axis = 1) const

For axis = 1, 2 or 3 returns skewness of the histogram along x, y or z axis. For axis = 11, 12 or 13 returns the approximate standard error of skewness of the histogram along x, y or z axis Note, that since third and fourth moment are not calculated at the fill time, skewness and its standard error are computed bin by bin

Double_t GetKurtosis(Int_t axis = 1) const

For axis =1, 2 or 3 returns kurtosis of the histogram along x, y or z axis. Kurtosis(gaussian(0, 1)) = 0. For axis =11, 12 or 13 returns the approximate standard error of kurtosis of the histogram along x, y or z axis Note, that since third and fourth moment are not calculated at the fill time, kurtosis and its standard error are computed bin by bin

void GetStats(Double_t* stats) const

fill the array stats from the contents of this histogram The array stats must be correctly dimensioned in the calling program. stats[0] = sumw stats[1] = sumw2 stats[2] = sumwx stats[3] = sumwx2 If no axis-subrange is specified (via TAxis::SetRange), the array stats is simply a copy of the statistics quantities computed at filling time. If a sub-range is specified, the function recomputes these quantities from the bin contents in the current axis range. Note that the mean value/RMS is computed using the bins in the currently defined range (see TAxis::SetRange). By default the range includes all bins from 1 to nbins included, excluding underflows and overflows. To force the underflows and overflows in the computation, one must call the static function TH1::StatOverflows(kTRUE) before filling the histogram.

void ResetStats()

Reset the statistics including the number of entries and replace with values calculates from bin content The number of entries is set to the total bin content or (in case of weighted histogram) to number of effective entries

Double_t AndersonDarlingTest(const TH1* h2, Option_t* option = "") const

Statistical test of compatibility in shape between this histogram and h2, using the Anderson-Darling 2 sample test. The AD 2 sample test formula are derived from the paper F.W Scholz, M.A. Stephens "k-Sample Anderson-Darling Test". The test is implemented in root in the ROOT::Math::GoFTest class It is the same formula ( (6) in the paper), and also shown in this preprint http://arxiv.org/pdf/0804.0380v1.pdf Binned data are considered as un-binned data with identical observation happening in the bin center. option is a character string to specify options "D" Put out a line of "Debug" printout "T" Return the normalized A-D test statistic Note1: Underflow and overflow are not considered in the test Note2: The test works only for un-weighted histogram (i.e. representing counts) Note3: The histograms are not required to have the same X axis Note4: The test works only for 1-dimensional histograms

Double_t AndersonDarlingTest(const TH1* h2, Double_t& advalue) const

Same funciton as above but returning also the test statistic value

Double_t KolmogorovTest(const TH1* h2, Option_t* option = "") const

Statistical test of compatibility in shape between this histogram and h2, using Kolmogorov test. Note that the KolmogorovTest (KS) test should in theory be used only for unbinned data and not for binned data as in the case of the histogram (see NOTE 3 below). So, before using this method blindly, read the NOTE 3. Default: Ignore under- and overflow bins in comparison option is a character string to specify options "U" include Underflows in test (also for 2-dim) "O" include Overflows (also valid for 2-dim) "N" include comparison of normalizations "D" Put out a line of "Debug" printout "M" Return the Maximum Kolmogorov distance instead of prob "X" Run the pseudo experiments post-processor with the following procedure: make pseudoexperiments based on random values from the parent distribution and compare the KS distance of the pseudoexperiment to the parent distribution. Bin the KS distances in a histogram, and then take the integral of all the KS values above the value obtained from the original data to Monte Carlo distribution. The number of pseudo-experiments nEXPT is currently fixed at 1000. The function returns the integral. (thanks to Ben Kilminster to submit this procedure). Note that this option "X" is much slower. The returned function value is the probability of test (much less than one means NOT compatible) Code adapted by Rene Brun from original HBOOK routine HDIFF NOTE1 A good description of the Kolmogorov test can be seen at: http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/eda/section3/eda35g.htm NOTE2 see also alternative function TH1::Chi2Test The Kolmogorov test is assumed to give better results than Chi2Test in case of histograms with low statistics. NOTE3 (Jan Conrad, Fred James) "The returned value PROB is calculated such that it will be uniformly distributed between zero and one for compatible histograms, provided the data are not binned (or the number of bins is very large compared with the number of events). Users who have access to unbinned data and wish exact confidence levels should therefore not put their data into histograms, but should call directly TMath::KolmogorovTest. On the other hand, since TH1 is a convenient way of collecting data and saving space, this function has been provided. However, the values of PROB for binned data will be shifted slightly higher than expected, depending on the effects of the binning. For example, when comparing two uniform distributions of 500 events in 100 bins, the values of PROB, instead of being exactly uniformly distributed between zero and one, have a mean value of about 0.56. We can apply a useful rule: As long as the bin width is small compared with any significant physical effect (for example the experimental resolution) then the binning cannot have an important effect. Therefore, we believe that for all practical purposes, the probability value PROB is calculated correctly provided the user is aware that: 1. The value of PROB should not be expected to have exactly the correct distribution for binned data. 2. The user is responsible for seeing to it that the bin widths are small compared with any physical phenomena of interest. 3. The effect of binning (if any) is always to make the value of PROB slightly too big. That is, setting an acceptance criterion of (PROB>0.05 will assure that at most 5% of truly compatible histograms are rejected, and usually somewhat less." Note also that for GoF test of unbinned data ROOT provides also the class ROOT::Math::GoFTest. The class has also method for doing one sample tests (i.e. comparing the data with a given distribution).

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Redefine x, y and z axis parameters with variable bin sizes *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* The X, Y and Z axis parameters are modified. The bins content array is resized if errors (Sumw2) the errors array is resized The previous bin contents are lost To change only the axis limits, see TAxis::SetRange xBins is supposed to be of length nx+1, yBins is supposed to be of length ny+1, zBins is supposed to be of length nz+1

void SetMaximum(Double_t maximum = -1111)

Set the maximum value for the Y axis, in case of 1-D histograms, or the Z axis in case of 2-D histograms By default the maximum value used in drawing is the maximum value of the histogram plus a margin of 10 per cent. If this function has been called, the value of 'maximum' is used, with no extra margin. TH1::GetMaximum returns the maximum value of the bins in the histogram, unless the maximum has been set manually by this function or by altering the y/z axis limits. Use TH1::GetMaximumBin to find the bin with the maximum value of an histogram

void SetMinimum(Double_t minimum = -1111)

Set the minimum value for the Y axis, in case of 1-D histograms, or the Z axis in case of 2-D histograms By default the minimum value used in drawing is the minimum value of the histogram plus a margin of 10 per cent. If this function has been called, the value of 'minimum' is used, with no extra margin. TH1::GetMinimum returns the minimum value of the bins in the histogram, unless the minimum has been set manually by this function or by altering the y/z axis limits. Use TH1::GetMinimumBin to find the bin with the minimum value of an histogram

void SetDirectory(TDirectory* dir)

By default when an histogram is created, it is added to the list of histogram objects in the current directory in memory. Remove reference to this histogram from current directory and add reference to new directory dir. dir can be 0 in which case the histogram does not belong to any directory.

void SetError(const Double_t* error)

-*-*-*-*-*-*-*Replace bin errors by values in array error*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

void Sumw2(Bool_t flag = kTRUE)

Create structure to store sum of squares of weights*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* if histogram is already filled, the sum of squares of weights is filled with the existing bin contents The error per bin will be computed as sqrt(sum of squares of weight) for each bin. This function is automatically called when the histogram is created if the static function TH1::SetDefaultSumw2 has been called before. If flag = false the structure is deleted

TH1 * ShowBackground(Int_t niter = 20, Option_t* option = "same")

This function calculates the background spectrum in this histogram. The background is returned as a histogram. Function parameters: -niter, number of iterations (default value = 2) Increasing niter make the result smoother and lower. -option: may contain one of the following options - to set the direction parameter "BackDecreasingWindow". By default the direction is BackIncreasingWindow - filterOrder-order of clipping filter, (default "BackOrder2" -possible values= "BackOrder4" "BackOrder6" "BackOrder8" - "nosmoothing"- if selected, the background is not smoothed By default the background is smoothed. - smoothWindow-width of smoothing window, (default is "BackSmoothing3") -possible values= "BackSmoothing5" "BackSmoothing7" "BackSmoothing9" "BackSmoothing11" "BackSmoothing13" "BackSmoothing15" - "nocompton"- if selected the estimation of Compton edge will be not be included (by default the compton estimation is set) - "same" : if this option is specified, the resulting background histogram is superimposed on the picture in the current pad. This option is given by default. NOTE that the background is only evaluated in the current range of this histogram. i.e., if this has a bin range (set via h->GetXaxis()->SetRange(binmin, binmax), the returned histogram will be created with the same number of bins as this input histogram, but only bins from binmin to binmax will be filled with the estimated background.

Int_t ShowPeaks(Double_t sigma = 2, Option_t* option = "", Double_t threshold = 0.05)

Interface to TSpectrum::Search. The function finds peaks in this histogram where the width is > sigma and the peak maximum greater than threshold*maximum bin content of this. For more details see TSpectrum::Search. Note the difference in the default value for option compared to TSpectrum::Search option="" by default (instead of "goff").

TH1* TransformHisto(TVirtualFFT* fft, TH1* h_output, Option_t* option)

For a given transform (first parameter), fills the histogram (second parameter) with the transform output data, specified in the third parameter If the 2nd parameter h_output is empty, a new histogram (TH1D or TH2D) is created and the user is responsible for deleting it. Available options: "RE" - real part of the output "IM" - imaginary part of the output "MAG" - magnitude of the output "PH" - phase of the output
