      Base template class for all Parametric Functions.
      The template argument is the type of parameteric function interface is implementing like
      Parameteric 1D, Multi-Dim or gradient parametric.

      A parameteric function is a Generic Function with parameters, so
      it is a function object which carries a state, the parameters.
      The parameters are described with a standard vector of doubles.

      This class contains the default implementations for the methods defined in the
      IParamFunction interface for dealing with parameters
      Specific parameteric function classes should derive from this class if they want to profit from
      default implementations for the abstract methods.
      The derived classes need to implement only the DoEvalPar( x, p) and Clone() methods for non-gradient
      parameteric functions or DoParameterDerivative(x,p,ipar) for gradient par functions

      @ingroup ParamFunc

template <class IPFType>
class ParamFunction : public IPFType  {


   typedef IPFType           BaseParFunc;
   typedef typename IPFType::BaseFunc BaseFunc;

      Construct a parameteric function with npar parameters
      @param npar number of parameters (default is zero)
   ParamFunction(unsigned int npar = 0) :
      fParams( std::vector<double>(npar) )
   {  }

   // destructor
   virtual ~ParamFunction() {}

   // copying constructors (can use default ones)

      Access the parameter values
   virtual const double * Parameters() const { return &fParams.front(); }

      Set the parameter values
      @param p vector of doubles containing the parameter values.
   virtual void SetParameters(const double * p)
      //fParams = std::vector<double>(p,p+fNpar);
      assert(fParams.size() == fNpar);

      Return the number of parameters
   unsigned int NPar() const { return fNpar; }

   //using BaseFunc::operator();

      Return \a true if the calculation of derivatives is implemented
//   bool ProvidesGradient() const {  return fProvGrad; }

      Return \a true if the calculation of derivatives with respect to the Parameters is implemented
   //bool ProvidesParameterGradient() const {  return fProvParGrad; }

//    const std::vector<double> & GetParGradient( double x) {
//       BaseParFunc::ParameterGradient(x,&fParGradient[0]);
