Detailed Description

Abstract interface for the event bin class.

An event bin is a collection of event atoms with similar properties. Event bins are used for binned analysis.

Each event has 3 attributes: energy, instrument direction and time. These attributes can be accessed and changed through the energy(), dir(), and time() methods.

The counts() and error() methods return the number of events within an event bin and the uncertainty in this number, which by default is given by the square root of the number of events (this is the default implementation provided by this class).

The size() method returns the size of an event bin, which is the quantity that has to be multiplied by the probability for an event to occur to predict the number of events in a bin). The size is the solid angle of the event bin times the energy width times the ontime interval covered by the events.

The GEventBin class does not hold any data members. Data members are stored in the derived classes.

Member Function Documentation

virtual std::string GEventBin::classname ( void  ) const
pure virtual

Return class name.

Returns
String containing the class name.

Returns the class name for non-abstract classes in a human readable way.

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.

virtual void GEventBin::clear ( void  )
pure virtual

Clear object.

Sets the object to a clean initial state. After calling the method the object will be in the same state as it were if an empty instance of the object would have been created.

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.

virtual GEvent* GEventBin::clone ( void  ) const
pure virtual

Clones object.

Returns
Pointer to deep copy of object.

Creates a deep copy of the object and returns a pointer to the object.

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.

void GEventBin::copy_members ( const GEventBin bin)
protected

Copy class members.

Parameters
[in]binEvent bin.

virtual double GEventBin::counts ( void  ) const
pure virtual
virtual void GEventBin::counts ( const double &  counts)
pure virtual
virtual const GInstDir& GEventBin::dir ( void  ) const
pure virtual

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.

virtual const GEnergy& GEventBin::energy ( void  ) const
pure virtual

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.

double GEventBin::error ( void  ) const
pure virtual

Return error in number of counts.

Returns \(\sqrt(counts)\) as the uncertainty in the number of counts in the bin. If counts <= 0 then zero is returned.

Implements GEvent.

Implemented in GCTAEventBin, GCOMEventBin, GLATEventBin, and GMWLDatum.
