Fitting with landau

Hiii Root Users

I would like to fit a histogram with a function which can be obtained by reflecting the landau distribution about x axis how can i do this

does anybody knows the solution…

Thanks in advance



See TMath::Landau() for available parameters.

Cheers, Axel.

or even simpler h->Fit(“landau”);


Hiii Axel

Thanks for reply

I did try to fit the distribution with for example TMath::Landau(-x,0,1,0) but it says unknown function TMath::Landau(-x,0,1,0) and also tried with Fit(“landau”) but in this case it is doing with the standard landau not with the mirror reflected landau …

Is there is another alteranative to this problem

You should call the right constructor. In your case do

TF1 f1("f1","[0]*TMath::Landau(-x,[1],[2])",0,1); f1.SetParameters(1,0,0.3); //for example

Hii Rene

Actually i first try to plot the distribution with both +x and -x so it is plotting with +x but with -x it is not plotting anything the code that is uses is as follow
TF1 *f1 = new TF1(“f1”,"[0]*TMath::Landau(x,[1],[2])",0,100);

of course you must set a valid range for your function. Try, eg:

TF1 *f1 = new TF1("f1","[0]*TMath::Landau(x,[1],[2])",-100,100);

Thanks Rene

Now I am getting the mirror inverted landau distribution
