Automatic Differentiation for error analysis
May 10, 2021
We present ADerrors.jl, a software for linear error propagation and analysis of Monte Carlo data. Although the focus is in data analysis in Lattice QCD, where estimates of the observables have to be computed from Monte Carlo samples, the software also deals with variables with uncertainties, either correlated or uncorrelated. Thanks to automatic differentiation techniques linear error propagation is performed exactly, even in iterative algorithms (i.e. errors in parameters of non-linear fits). In this contribution we present an overview of the capabilities of the software, including access to uncertainties in fit parameters and dealing with correlated data. The software, written in julia, is available for download and use in https://gitlab.ift.uam-csic.es/alberto/aderrors.jl
