Distribution Fitting/Regression Library

Project description

probfit is a set of functions that helps you construct a complex fit. It’s intended to be used with iminuit. The tool includes Binned/Unbinned Likelihood estimators, 𝝌² regression, Binned 𝝌² estimator and Simultaneous fit estimator. Various functors for manipulating PDFs such as Normalization and Convolution (with caching) and various built-in functions normally used in B physics are also provided.

Getting started

import numpy as np
from iminuit import Minuit
from probfit import UnbinnedLH, gaussian
data = np.random.randn(10000)
unbinned_likelihood = UnbinnedLH(gaussian, data)
minuit = Minuit(unbinned_likelihood, mean=0.1, sigma=1.1)
