TH1 is the base class of all histogram classes in ROOT.
It provides the common interface for operations such as binning, filling, drawing, which will be detailed below.
ROOT supports the following histogram types:
^{ (*) INT_MAX = 2147483647 is the maximum value for a variable of type int. }
The inheritance hierarchy looks as follows:
Histograms are created by invoking one of the constructors, e.g.
Histograms may also be created by:
When a histogram is created, a reference to it is automatically added to the list of inmemory objects for the current file or directory. This default behaviour can be changed by:
When 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.
Axis titles can be specified in the title argument of the constructor. They must be separated by ";":
The histogram title and the axis titles can be any TLatex string, and are persisted if a histogram is written to a file.
Any title can be omitted:
The method SetTitle() has the same syntax:
Alternatively, the title of each axis can be set directly:
For bin labels see binning.
All histogram types support either fix or variable bin sizes. 2D histograms may have fix size bins along X and variable size bins along Y or viceversa. The functions to fill, manipulate, draw or access histograms are identical in both cases.
Each histogram always contains 3 axis objects of type TAxis: fXaxis, fYaxis and fZaxis. To access the axis parameters, use:
See class TAxis for a description of all the access functions. The axis range is always stored internally in double precision.
For all histogram types: nbins, xlow, xup
In case of 2D or 3D histograms, a "global bin" number is defined. For example, assuming a 3D histogram with (binx, biny, binz), the function
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.:
returns the center along z of bin number 27 (not the global bin) in the 3D histogram h3.
By default, an histogram axis is drawn with its numeric bin labels. One can specify alphanumeric labels instead with:
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
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
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
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.
When an histogram is created with an axis lower limit greater or equal to its upper limit, the SetBuffer is automatically called with an argument fBufferSize equal to fgBufferSize (default value=1000). fgBufferSize may be reset via the static function TH1::SetDefaultBufferSize. The axis limits will be automatically computed when the buffer will be full or when the function BufferEmpty is called.
At any time, an histogram can be rebinned via TH1::Rebin. This function returns a new histogram with the rebinned contents. If bin errors were stored, they are recomputed during the rebinning.
An histogram is typically filled with statements like:
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 1D histograms or global bin number for 2D and 3D 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:
By default, the bin number is computed using the current axis ranges. If the automatic binning option has been set via
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 1D, 2D and 3D 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.
By default, for each bin, the sum of weights is computed at fill time. One can also call TH1::Sumw2 to force the storage and computation of the sum of the square of weights per bin. If Sumw2 has been called, the error per bin is computed as the sqrt(sum of squares of weights), otherwise the error is set equal to the sqrt(bin content). To return the error for a given bin number, do:
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:
Many types of operations are supported on histograms or between histograms
If an histogram has associated error bars (TH1::Sumw2 has been called), the resulting error bars are also computed assuming independent histograms. In case of divisions, Binomial errors are also supported. One can mark a histogram to be an "average" histogram by setting its bit kIsAverage via myhist.SetBit(TH1::kIsAverage); When adding (see TH1::Add) average histograms, the histograms are averaged and not summed.
Histograms (1D, 2D, 3D and Profiles) can be fitted with a user specified function via TH1::Fit. When an histogram is fitted, the resulting function with its parameters is added to the list of functions of this histogram. 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:
One can:
One can fit these projections via:
TH1::FillRandom can be used to randomly fill an histogram using the contents of an existing TF1 function or another TH1 histogram (for all dimensions). For example the following two statements create and fill an histogram 10000 times with a default gaussian distribution of mean 0 and sigma 1:
TH1::GetRandom can be used to return a random number distributed according the contents of an histogram.
Like for any other ROOT object derived from TObject, one can use the Clone() function. This makes an identical copy of the original histogram including all associated errors and functions, e.g.:
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.
Histograms are drawn via the THistPainter class. Each histogram has a pointer to its own painter (to be usable in a multithreaded program). Many drawing options are supported. See THistPainter::Paint() for more details.
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
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 1D histograms this means the yaxis, while for 2D histograms these functions affect the zaxis).
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().
By default contours are automatically generated at equidistant intervals. A default value of 20 levels is used. This can be modified via TH1::SetContour() or TH1::SetContourLevel(). the contours level info is used by the drawing options "cont", "surf", and "lego".
The histogram classes inherit from the attribute classes: TAttLine, TAttFill, and TAttMarker. See the member functions of these classes for the list of options.
Use the functions of TAxis, such as
The following statements create a ROOT file and store an histogram on the file. Because TH1 derives from TNamed, the key identifier on the file is the histogram name:
To read this histogram in another Root session, do:
One can save all histograms in memory to the file by:
IMPORTANT NOTE: The returned values for GetMean and GetStdDev depend on how the histogram statistics are calculated. By default, if no range has been set, the returned values are the (unbinned) ones calculated at fill time. If a range has been set, however, the values are calculated using the bins in range; THIS IS TRUE EVEN IF THE RANGE INCLUDES ALL BINS–use TAxis::SetRange(0, 0) to unset the range. To ensure that the returned values are always those of the binned data stored in the histogram, call TH1::ResetStats. See TH1::GetStats.

Replace contents of this histogram by the addition of h1 and 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.
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 ith 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. One can mark a histogram to be an average histogram by setting its bit kIsAverage with myhist.SetBit(TH1::kIsAverage); Note that the two histograms must have their kIsAverage bit 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::Add
IMPORTANT NOTE2: You should be careful about the statistics of the returned histogram, whose statistics may be binned or unbinned, depending on whether c1 is negative, whether TAxis::kAxisRange is true, and whether TH1::ResetStats has been called on either this or h1. See TH1::GetStats.

The function return kFALSE if the Add operation failed
Reimplemented in TH2Poly, TProfile, TProfile2D, and TProfile3D.
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 (1d 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

Sets the flag controlling the automatic add of histograms in memory.
By default (fAddDirectory = kTRUE), histograms are automatically added to the list of objects in memory. Note that one histogram can be removed from its support directory by calling h>SetDirectory(0) or h>SetDirectory(dir) to add it to the list of objects in the directory dir.
NOTE that this is a static function. To call it, use; TH1::AddDirectory

\( \chi^{2} \) test for comparing weighted and unweighted histograms
Function: Returns pvalue. Other return values are specified by the 3rd parameter
[in]  h2  the second histogram 
[in]  option 

[in]  res  not empty  computes normalized residuals and returns them in this array 
The current implementation is based on the papers \( \chi^{2} \) test for comparison of weighted and unweighted histograms" in Proceedings of PHYSTAT05 and "Comparison weighted and unweighted histograms", arXiv:physics/0605123 by N.Gagunashvili. This function has been implemented by Daniel Haertl in August 2006.
A frequently used technique in data analysis is the comparison of histograms. First suggested by Pearson [1] the \( \chi^{2} \) test of homogeneity is used widely for comparing usual (unweighted) histograms. This paper describes the implementation modified \( \chi^{2} \) tests for comparison of weighted and unweighted histograms and two weighted histograms [2] as well as usual Pearson's \( \chi^{2} \) test for comparison two usual (unweighted) histograms.
Comparison of two histograms expect hypotheses that two histograms represent identical distributions. To make a decision pvalue should be calculated. The hypotheses of identity is rejected if the pvalue 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 \( \chi^{2} \) 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 \( \chi^{2} \) test.
\( \chi^{2} \) 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:
\[ N = \sum_{i=1}^{r} n_{i} \]
and
\[ M = \sum_{i=1}^{r} m_{i} \]
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
\[ \sum_{i=1}^{r} p_{i}=1 \]
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
\[ \frac{e^{Np_{i}}(Np_{i})^{n_{i}}}{n_{i}!} \]
for the first histogram and with distribution
\[ \frac{e^{Mp_{i}}(Mp_{i})^{m_{i}}}{m_{i}!} \]
for the second histogram. If the hypothesis of homogeneity is valid, then the maximum likelihood estimator of pi, i=1,...,r, is
\[ \hat{p}_{i}= \frac{n_{i}+m_{i}}{N+M} \]
and then
\[ X^{2} = \sum_{i=1}^{r}\frac{(n_{i}N\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{N\hat{p}_{i}} + \sum_{i=1}^{r}\frac{(m_{i}M\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{M\hat{p}_{i}} =\frac{1}{MN} \sum_{i=1}^{r}\frac{(Mn_{i}Nm_{i})^{2}}{n_{i}+m_{i}} \]
has approximately a \( \chi^{2}_{(r1)} \) 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 \( \chi^{2} \) value. Most convenient for analysis are the adjusted (normalized) residuals [4]
\[ r_{i} = \frac{n_{i}N\hat{p}_{i}}{\sqrt{N\hat{p}_{i}}\sqrt{(1N/(N+M))(1(n_{i}+m_{i})/(N+M))}} \]
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 \( \chi^{2} \) 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 \( M\hat{p}_{i}, N\hat{p}_{i}, i=1,...,r \) can be used.
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
\[ N = \sum_{i=1}^{r} n_{i} \]
and the total weight of events in the weighted histogram is equal to
\[ W = \sum_{i=1}^{r} w_{i} \]
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
\[ \sum_{i=1}^{r} p_{i} = 1 \]
for the unweighted histogram. The weight wi is a random variable with a distribution approximated by the normal probability distribution \( N(Wp_{i},\sigma_{i}^{2}) \) where \( \sigma_{i}^{2} \) is the variance of the weight wi. If we replace the variance \( \sigma_{i}^{2} \) with estimate \( s_{i}^{2} \) (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
\[ \hat{p}_{i} = \frac{Ww_{i}Ns_{i}^{2}+\sqrt{(Ww_{i}Ns_{i}^{2})^{2}+4W^{2}s_{i}^{2}n_{i}}}{2W^{2}} \]
We may then use the test statistic
\[ X^{2} = \sum_{i=1}^{r} \frac{(n_{i}N\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{N\hat{p}_{i}} + \sum_{i=1}^{r} \frac{(w_{i}W\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{s_{i}^{2}} \]
and it has approximately a \( \sigma^{2}_{(r1)} \) 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
\[ n_{i}^{equiv} = \frac{ w_{i}^{2} }{ s_{i}^{2} } \]
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 \( z_{i}^{2} \) of the difference between the weight wi and the estimated expectation value of the weight is approximately equal to:
\[ z_{i}^{2} = Var(w_{i}W\hat{p}_{i}) = N\hat{p}_{i}(1N\hat{p}_{i})\left(\frac{Ws_{i}^{2}}{\sqrt{(Ns_{i}^{2}w_{i}W)^{2}+4W^{2}s_{i}^{2}n_{i}}}\right)^{2}+\frac{s_{i}^{2}}{4}\left(1+\frac{Ns_{i}^{2}w_{i}W}{\sqrt{(Ns_{i}^{2}w_{i}W)^{2}+4W^{2}s_{i}^{2}n_{i}}}\right)^{2} \]
The residuals
\[ r_{i} = \frac{w_{i}W\hat{p}_{i}}{z_{i}} \]
have approximately a normal distribution with mean equal to 0 and standard deviation equal to 1.
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
\[ W_{1} = \sum_{i=1}^{r} w_{1i} \]
and
\[ W_{2} = \sum_{i=1}^{r} w_{2i} \]
in the second histogram. Let us formulate the hypothesis of identity of weighted histograms so that there exist r constants p1,...,pr, such that
\[ \sum_{i=1}^{r} p_{i} = 1 \]
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 \( N(W_{1}p_{i},\sigma_{1i}^{2}) \) for the first histogram and by a distribution \( N(W_{2}p_{i},\sigma_{2i}^{2}) \) for the second. Here \( \sigma_{1i}^{2} \) and \( \sigma_{2i}^{2} \) are the variances of w1i and w2i with estimators \( s_{1i}^{2} \) and \( s_{2i}^{2} \) respectively. If the hypothesis of identity is valid, then the maximum likelihood and Least Square Method estimator of pi,i=1,...,r, is
\[ \hat{p}_{i} = \frac{w_{1i}W_{1}/s_{1i}^{2}+w_{2i}W_{2} /s_{2i}^{2}}{W_{1}^{2}/s_{1i}^{2}+W_{2}^{2}/s_{2i}^{2}} \]
We may then use the test statistic
\[ X^{2} = \sum_{i=1}^{r} \frac{(w_{1i}W_{1}\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{s_{1i}^{2}} + \sum_{i=1}^{r} \frac{(w_{2i}W_{2}\hat{p}_{i})^{2}}{s_{2i}^{2}} = \sum_{i=1}^{r} \frac{(W_{1}w_{2i}W_{2}w_{1i})^{2}}{W_{1}^{2}s_{2i}^{2}+W_{2}^{2}s_{1i}^{2}} \]
and it has approximately a \( \chi^{2}_{(r1)} \) distribution [2]. The normalized or studentised residuals [6]
\[ r_{i} = \frac{w_{1i}W_{1}\hat{p}_{i}}{s_{1i}\sqrt{1  \frac{1}{(1+W_{2}^{2}s_{1i}^{2}/W_{1}^{2}s_{2i}^{2})}}} \]
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.
The method described herein is now illustrated with an example. We take a distribution
\[ \phi(x) = \frac{2}{(x10)^{2}+1} + \frac{1}{(x14)^{2}+1} (1) \]
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:
The value of the test statistic \( \chi^{2} \) is equal to 21.09 with pvalue 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 QQ plot (see Fig. 1d) of residuals are regular and we cannot identify the outliers or bins with a big influence on \( \chi^{2} \).
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:
The value of the test statistic \( \chi^{2} \) is equal to 32.33 with pvalue 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 QQ plot (see Fig. 2d) of residuals are not regular and we can identify the outlier or bin with a big influence on \( \chi^{2} \).

Internal method to fill histogram content from a vector called directly by TH1::BufferEmpty.
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.
Reimplemented from TObject.
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
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 responsibility 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.

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 extended histogram. Takes into account errors (Sumw2) if any.

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,...)

[in]  goption  specify a list of graphics options. See TH1::Draw for a complete list of these options. 
[in]  xxmin  range 
[in]  xxmax  range 
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:
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
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:
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.
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. Using option "MULTI" a multinomial likelihood fit is used. In this case the function normalization is not fitted but only the function shape. Therefore the provided function must be normalized. 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:
where MyFittingFunction is of type:
By default a chi2 (leastsquare) fit is performed on the histogram. The socalled modified leastsquare method is used where the residual for each bin is computed using as error the observed value (the bin error)
\[ Chi2 = \sum{ \left(\frac{y(i)  f(x(i)  p )}{e(i)} \right)^2 } \]
where y(i) is the bin content for each bin i, x(i) is the bin center and e(i) is the bin error (sqrt(y(i) for an unweighted histogram. Bins with zero errors are excluded from the fit. See also later the note on the treatment of empty bins. When using option "I" the residual is computed not using the function value at the bin center, f (x(i)  p), but the integral of the function in the bin, Integral{ f(xp)dx } divided by the bin volume
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. The negative loglikelihood to be minimized is
\[ NLL = \sum{ log Poisson ( y(i)  f(x(i)  p ) ) } \]
The exact likelihood used is the Poisson likelihood described in this paper: S. Baker and R. D. Cousins, “Clarification of the use of chisquare and likelihood functions in fits to histograms,” Nucl. Instrum. Meth. 221 (1984) 437.
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 bins with low statistics. In case of high statistics/bin the distribution of the bin content becomes a normal distribution and the likelihood and chi2 fit give the same result.
The likelihood method, although a bit slower, it is therefore the recommended method in case of low bin statistics, where the chi2 method may give incorrect results, in particular when there are several empty bins (see also below). In case of a weighted histogram, it is possible to perform a likelihood fit by using the option "WL". Note a weighted histogram is an histogram which has been filled with weights and it contains the sum of the weight square ( TH1::Sumw2() has been called). The bin error for a weighted histogram is the square root of the sum of the weight square.
Empty bins, which have the content equal to zero AND error equal to zero, are excluded by default from the chisquare fit, but they are considered in the likelihood fit. since they affect the likelihood if the function value in these bins is not negligible. When using option "WW" these bins will be considered in the chi2 fit with an error of 1. Note that if the histogram is having bins with zero content and non zeroerrors they are considered as any other bins in the fit. Instead bins with zero error and nonzero content are excluded in the chi2 fit. A likelihood fit should also not be performed on such an histogram, since we are assuming a wrong pdf for each bin. In general, one should not fit an histogram with nonempty bins and zero errors, apart if all the bins have zero errors. In this case one could use the option "w", which gives a weight=1 for each bin (unweighted leastsquare fit). Note that in case of histogram with no errors (chi2 fit with option W or W1) the resulting fitted parameter errors are corrected by the obtained chi2 value using this expression: errorp *= sqrt(chisquare/(ndf1))
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. Also in this case the obtained parameter error are corrected as in the case when the option "W" is used (see above)
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:
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:
If the option "S" is instead used, TFitResultPtr contains the TFitResult and behaves as a smart pointer to it. For example one can do:
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:
The status of the fit can be obtained converting the TFitResultPtr to an integer independently if the fit option "S" is used or not:
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.
Use TF1::RejectPoint inside your fitting function to exclude points within a certain range from the fit. Example:
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:
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 function (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
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 usage of the BFGS algorithm of the GSL multidimensional 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.

Return an histogram containing the asymmetry of this histogram with h2, where the asymmetry is defined as:
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 assuming Poisson statistics on h1 and h2 (that is, dh = sqrt(h)).
example: assuming 'h1' and 'h2' are already filled
then 'h3' is created and filled with the asymmetry between 'h1' and 'h2'; h1 and h2 are left intact.

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 provided by the user. If not provided a default suffix="_cumulative" is used.
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.
Note 2: By default the cumulative is computed from bin 1 to Nbins If an axis range is set, values between the minimum and maximum of the range are set. Setting an axis range can also be used for including underflow and overflow in the cumulative (e.g. by setting h>GetXaxis()>SetRange(0, h>GetNbinsX()+1); )

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).

Long64_t TH1::Merge  (  TCollection *  li, 
Option_t *  opt  
) 
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.
Possible option: NOL : the merger will ignore the labels and merge the histograms bin by bin using bin center values to match bins NOCHECK: the histogram will not perform a check for duplicate labels in case of axes with labels. The check (enabled by default) slows down the merging
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:
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
Reimplemented in TProfile, TProfile2D, and TProfile3D.

virtual 
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
Reimplemented in TProfile, TProfile2D, and TProfile3D.
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

virtual 
Rebin this histogram.
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
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.
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 lowedges 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. A warning message is emitted in this case

Reset the statistics including the number of entries and replace with values calculated 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
Note that, by default, before calling this function, statistics are those computed at fill time, which are unbinned. See TH1::GetStats.

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: Sumw2() is called automatically when scaling. If you are not interested in the histogram statistics you can call Sumw2(kFALSE) or use the option "nosw2"
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.
Reimplemented in TH2Poly, TProfile, TProfile2D, and TProfile3D.
Set the bar offset as fraction of the bin width for drawing mode "B".
This shifts bars to the right on the x axis, and helps to draw bars next to each other.
Set the width of bars as fraction of the bin width for drawing mode "B".
This allows for making bars narrower than the bin width. With SetBarOffset(), this helps to draw multiple bars next to each other.
Set bin content see convention for numbering bins in TH1::GetBin In case the bin number is greater than the number of bins and the timedisplay option is set or CanExtendAllAxes(), the number of bins is automatically doubled to accommodate the new bin.
Set the bin Error Note that this resets the bin eror option to be of Normal Type and for the nonempty bin the bin error is set by default to the square root of their content.
Note that in case the user sets after calling SetBinError explicitly a new bin content (e.g. using SetBinContent) he needs then to provide also the corresponding bin error (using SetBinError) since the bin error will not be recalculated after setting the content and a default error = 0 will be used for those bins.

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.
Note that the directory is not a real property of the histogram and it will not be copied when the histogram is copied or cloned. If the user wants to have the copied (cloned) histogram in the same directory, he needs to set again the directory using SetDirectory to the copied histograms

This function calculates the background spectrum in this histogram.
The background is returned as a histogram.
[in]  niter  number of iterations (default value = 2) Increasing niter make the result smoother and lower. 
[in]  option  may contain one of the following options

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.

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").
Reimplemented in TH2.
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)
Reimplemented in TH2.
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 containing the sum of the square of weights is rest and it will be empty, but it is not deleted (i.e. GetSumw2()>fN = 0)
Reimplemented in TProfile, TProfile2D, and TProfile3D.

static 
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.
