[ROOT] Errors used in TGraphErrors

I was wondering, which is the method implemented for the assignment of
errors in
the TGraphErrors class? The above class accepts errors on both x and y, so
exaclty the errors are combined for the fit? I assume there is a chi^2
function like:

             [ y-f(x) ]**2                     [ y-f(x) ]
           ------------------       or        ( -------------- ) **2
                 s**2                               s

What is the s in the above expressions?
