    • Method Detail

      • minimize

        public FunctionMinimum minimize(int maxfcn,                       double toler)
        Causes minimization of the FCN and returns the result in form of a FunctionMinimum.
        maxfcn - specifies the (approximate) maximum number of function calls after which the calculation will be stopped even if it has not yet converged.
        toler - specifies the required tolerance on the function value at the minimum. The default tolerance value is 0.1, and the minimization will stop when the estimated vertical distance to the minimum (EDM) is less than 0:001*tolerance*errorDef

      • setUseAnalyticalDerivatives

        public void setUseAnalyticalDerivatives(boolean use)
        By default if the function to be minimized implements FCNGradientBase then the analytical gradient provided by the function will be used. Set this to false to disable this behaviour and force numerical calculation of the gradient.
      • useAnalyticalDerivaties

        public boolean useAnalyticalDerivaties()
      • setCheckAnalyticalDerivatives

        public void setCheckAnalyticalDerivatives(boolean check)
        Minuit does a check of the user gradient at the beginning, if this is not wanted the set this to "false".
      • checkAnalyticalDerivatives

        public boolean checkAnalyticalDerivatives()
      • setErrorDef

        public void setErrorDef(double errorDef)
        errorDef() is the error definition of the function. E.g. is 1 if function is Chi2 and 0.5 if function is -logLikelihood. If the user wants instead the 2-sigma errors, errorDef() = 4, as Chi2(x+n*sigma) = Chi2(x) + n*n.

        public double errorDef()
