What the new RooFit can do for your analysis
February 24, 2021
RooFit is a toolkit for statistical modelling and fitting, and together with RooStats it is used for measurements and statistical tests by most experiments in particle physics. Since one year, RooFit is being modernised.
In this talk, improvements already released with ROOT will be discussed, such as faster data loading, vectorised computations and more standard-like interfaces. These allow for speeding up unbinned fits by several factors, and make RooFit easier to use from both C++ and Python.
How to cite
Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
