GammaFun¶

Example showing the usage of the major special math functions (gamma, beta, erf) in ROOT To execute the macro type in:

root[0]: .x GammaFun.C


It will create one canvas with the representation of the tgamma, lgamma, beta, erf and erfc functions

setting the title in a label style

In [2]:
TPaveLabel *p1 = new TPaveLabel(.1,.90 , (.1+.50),(.90+.10) ,"ROOT::Math::tgamma(x)", "NDC");
p1->SetFillColor(0);
p1->SetTextFont(22);
p1->SetTextColor(kBlack);


setting graph draw axis first (use TH1 to draw the frame)

In [3]:
TH1F * h = new TH1F("htmp","",500,-2,5);
h->SetMinimum(-20);
h->SetMaximum(20);
h->GetXaxis()->SetTitleSize(0.06);
h->GetXaxis()->SetTitleOffset(.7);
h->GetXaxis()->SetTitle("x");

h->Draw();


draw the functions 3 times in the separate ranges to avoid singularities

In [4]:
f1a->SetLineWidth(2);
f1a->SetLineColor(kBlue);

f1a->SetRange(-2,-1);
f1a->DrawCopy("same");

f1a->SetRange(-1,0);
f1a->DrawCopy("same");

f1a->SetRange(0,5);
f1a->DrawCopy("same");

p1->Draw();

c1->cd(2);

p2->SetFillColor(0);
p2->SetTextFont(22);
p2->SetTextColor(kBlack);
f2a->SetLineColor(kBlue);
f2a->SetLineWidth(2);
f2a->GetXaxis()->SetTitle("x");
f2a->GetXaxis()->SetTitleSize(0.06);
f2a->GetXaxis()->SetTitleOffset(.7);
f2a->SetTitle("");
f2a->Draw();
p2->Draw();

c1->cd(3);

TPaveLabel *p3 = new TPaveLabel(.1,.90 , (.1+.50),(.90+.10) ,"ROOT::Math::beta(x, y)", "NDC");

f3a->GetYaxis()->SetTitleSize(0.06);

f3a->Draw("surf1");//option for a 3-dim plot
p3->Draw();

TPaveLabel *p4 = new TPaveLabel(.1,.90 , (.1+.50),(.90+.10) ,"erf(x) and erfc(x)", "NDC");

p4->SetTextFont(22);
p4->SetTextColor(kBlack);
f4a->SetTitle("erf(x) and erfc(x)");
f4a->SetLineWidth(2);
f4b->SetLineWidth(2);
f4a->SetLineColor(kBlue);
