ROOT::Minuit2::GaussianModelFunction Class Reference

Sample implementation of a parametric function.

It can be used for example for the Fumili method when minimizing with Minuit. In the present case the function is a one-dimensional Gaussian, which is described by its mean, standard deviation and the constant term describing the amplitude. As it is used for function minimization, the role of the variables (or coordinates) and parameters is inversed! I.e. in the case of a one-dimensional Gaussian it is x that will be the Parameter and the mean, standard deviation etc will be the variables.
