Hello ROOTers,

As shown in the figure, I have fitted a curve on histogram (skew-gaussian in this case). For that I used TF1 class.

From the fitting parameters, I know the amplitude and position of the peak. Now, as the figure depicts, I want to divide the peak amplitude and then find the position of two points on the curve. Much similar to FWHM but for any curve.

Any suggestion would be a great help.

Thanks,

Divyang.

Here is the code I used to generate this plot,

```
void hist_skew_fit(){
TRandom r;
Double_t px, py, pt;
TCanvas *can = new TCanvas();
TH1F *h = new TH1F("h", "h", 100, 0.0, 4.0);
for (int i = 0; i < 10000; i++) {
r.Rannor(px, py);
pt = sqrt(px* px + py* py);
h -> Fill(pt);
}
// Definition of the fitting function rightSide_skew is given below
TF1 *f = new TF1("f", rightSide_skew, 0.0, 4.0, 4);
f -> SetParameters(1., 0.5, 250., 0.5);
h -> Fit("f", "R");
h -> Draw();
}
```

The definition of fitting function is here. I would appreciate if the answer is applicable for any curve.

```
double rightSide_skew(double *x, double *p)
{
double xmean = p[0];
double sigma = p[1];
double Ampli = p[2];
double k = p[3];
double t = (x[0] - xmean)/ sigma;
double g = Ampli* TMath::Exp(-0.5* t* t); // gaussian part
double h = Ampli* TMath::Exp(0.5* k* k - k* t); // right hand side skew
double F;
if (t <= k) {F = g;}
else if (k < t) {F = h;}
return F;
}
```
