MnMigrad() return c++ seg-fault in PyROOT

I want to use ROOT.Minuit2 for fitting data. However, when I execute MnMigrad() in PyROOT, Jupyter console displays c++ segmentation fault error. How to fix under my code ?

class MyFCN(Minuit2.FCNBase):
    def __init__(self):
    def __call__(self, params):
        return 1.

fcn = MyFCN()
param = Minuit2.MnUserParameters()
param.Add("test1",0.01, 0.01)
param.Add("test2",0.01, 0.01)
param.Add("test3",0.01, 0.01)
migrad = Minuit2.MnMigrad(fcn, param,3)

Error massage is here.

@moneta do you see any problem in this code? Is this how one would do this in C++? Is there any alternative?

It should work in C++, see for example root/DemoGaussSim.cxx at master · root-project/root · GitHub.

As a workaround I would use the Minimizer interface, see the tutorial


I think you need to at least implement the Up method, which is pure virtual in FCNBase. Not sure if there are other required methods as well.
