when fitting my histogram MINUIT prints an ERROR MATRIX UNCERTAINTY onto my terminal. Because I do many fits, I would like to be able to extract the ERROR MATRIX UNCERTAINTY with my root macro. I saw that there is documentation out there to extract the error matrix, but I do not know how to get from there to the uncertainty of the matrix.
This is an internal parameter used inside Minuit to monitor the minimization, and it depends on the change of the matrix with respect to the previos iteration.
It has no use outside and it cannot be retrieved.
You should run “HESSE”, to be sure to have a correct error matrix, since the full second derivatives are used in this case.
You can do that by using option “E” when fitting.
