RooStats::NumberCountingPdfFactory Class Reference

A factory for building PDFs and data for a number counting combination.

The factory produces a PDF for N channels with uncorrelated background uncertainty. Correlations can be added by extending this PDF with additional terms. The factory relates the signal in each channel to a master signal strength times the expected signal in each channel. Thus, the final test is performed on the master signal strength. This yields a more powerful test than letting signal in each channel be independent.

The problem has been studied in these references:

One can incorporate uncertainty on the expected signal by adding additional terms. For the future, perhaps this factory should be extended to include the efficiency terms automatically.
