MINUIT from Python - Fitting like a boss

iminuit is a Python interface to the MINUIT C++ package.

It can be used as a general robust function minimisation method, but is most commonly used for likelihood fits of models to data, and to get model parameter error estimates from likelihood profile analysis.

## In a nutshell¶

from iminuit import Minuit

def f(x, y, z):
return (x - 2) ** 2 + (y - 3) ** 2 + (z - 4) ** 2

m = Minuit(f)
