Project description Documentation Status

QHist – A Quick Histogram drawer for ROOT::TTree for smoother HEP analysis!


  • Simple draw from tree and parameter (branch name):

    h1 = QHist()
    h1.trees = t1
    h1.params = 'M'
  • Overlaid comparison between branches, compact syntax:

    QHist(trees=t1, params=['mu_PT/1e3','pi_PT/1e3'], xlabel='PT [GeV]', xmax=60).draw()
  • Compare between trees, with filtering, and reusable via templating:

    H = QHist(trees=[t1, t2, t3], filters=['mu_PT>20e3'])
    H(params='APT'  , xmin=0  , xlabel='PT-asymmetry').draw()
    H(params='M/1e3', xmax=120, xlabel='Mass [GeV]').draw()


Installation & dependencies

It’s available from pip install qhist. The package requires an existing installation of PyROOT.


This packacge was written and used during my PhD in 2013-2017 at EPFL (Lausanne) and LHCb collaboration (CERN), for the work in Z->tau tau cross-section measurement and H->mu tau searches at LHCb (8TeV). I hope it can be of a good use for future analysis…
