MINUIT-a system for function minimization and analysis of the parameter errors and correlations
Title of program: MINUIT gating the shape of the function near the minimum to determine the errors. In this essentially statistical problem the Catalogue number: ACWH function involved is usually aExpand
RANLUX: A Fortran implementation of the high-quality pseudorandom number generator of Lüscher
TLDR
A portable Fortran 77 implementation of a high-quality generator called RANLUX (for LUXury RANdom numbers), using the algorithm of Martin Luscher described in an accompanying article. Expand
A Review of Pseudorandom Number Generators
This is a brief review of the current situation concerning practical pseudorandom number generation for Monte Carlo calculations. The conclusion is that pseudorandom number generators with theExpand
Developments of mathematical software libraries for the LHC experiments
TLDR
The various library components and their design are presented, with particular emphasis on fitting and minimization, describing the new object oriented implementation in C++ of the MINUIT minimization package. Expand
Errors on ratios of small numbers of events
The correct expression for the error on the ratio of numbers of events is given. Values are tabulated for small numbers of events. Conventionally the normal approximation is used, yielding too smallExpand
Energy loss and energy straggling of protons and pions in the momentum range 0. 7 to 115 GeV/c
The energy-loss distribution for pions and protons, with momenta between 0.7 and 115 GeV/c, has been measured in an ion-implanted silicon detector of 300 ..mu..m thickness. The data are wellExpand
Acceleration of RANLUX
Abstract A pseudorandom number generator that was proposed by Luscher and coded in Fortran by James has been accelerated by conversion to integer arithmetic. At the maximum “luxury” level, thisExpand
Developments of mathematical software libraries for the LHC experiments
TLDR
The various library components and their design are presented, with particular emphasis on fitting and minimization, describing the new object oriented implementation in C++ of the MINUIT minimization package. Expand
Energy-loss distributions for single particles and several particles in a thin silicon absorber
The energy-loss distributions for protons, with kinetic energies between 220 and 850 MeV, and for several relativistic particles produced at incoming beam momentum of 115 GeV/c, have been measured inExpand
