Hi, everyone, I am pleased to announce a haskell binding to the ROOT analysis package, HROOT: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/HROOT From wikipedia: ROOT (http://root.cern.ch) is an object-oriented program and library developed by CERN. It was originally designed for particle physics data analysis and contains several features specific to this field, but it is also used in other applications such as astronomy and data mining. ROOT includes * histogramming and graphing to view and analyze distributions and functions, * curve fitting (regression analysis) and minimization of functionals, * statistics tools used for data analysis, * matrix algebra, * four-vector computations, as used in high energy physics, * standard mathematical functions, * multivariate data analysis, e.g. using neural networks, * image manipulation, used, for instance, to analyze astronomical pictures, * access to distributed data (in the context of the Grid), * distributed computing, to parallelize data analyses, * persistence and serialization of objects, which can cope with changes in class definitions of persistent data, access to databases, * 3D visualizations (geometry) * creating files in various graphics formats, like PostScript, PNG, SVG, * interfacing Python and Ruby code in both directions, * interfacing Monte Carlo event generators.(Continue reading)
