**Historical background…**

Validation of Geant4 physics models through comparison of simulation vs. experimental data or reference databases Some use cases The test statistics computation concerns the agreement between the two samples’ empirical distribution functions Regression testing Throughout the software life-cycle Online DAQ Monitoring detector behaviour w.r.t. a reference Simulation validation Comparison with experimental data Reconstruction Comparison of reconstructed vs. expected distributions Physics analysis Comparisons of experimental distributions (ATLAS vs. CMS Higgs?) Comparison with theoretical distributions (data vs. Standard Model)

**“A Goodness-of-Fit Statistical Toolkit”**

Releases are publicly downloadable from the web code, documentation etc. Releases are also distributed with LCG Mathematical Libraries Also ported to Java, distributed with JAS G.A.P Cirrone, S. Donadio, S. Guatelli, A. Mantero, B. Mascialino, S. Parlati, M.G. Pia, A. Pfeiffer, A. Ribon, P.

**Flexible, extensible, maintainable system**

Vision of the project Basic vision General purpose tool Toolkit approach (choice open to users) Open source product Independent from specific analysis tools Easily usable in analysis and other tools Clearly define scope, objectives Rigorous software process Software quality Flexible, extensible, maintainable system Build on a solid architecture

**GoF algorithms (latest public release)**

Algorithms for binned distributions Anderson-Darling test Chi-squared test Fisz-Cramer-von Mises test Algorithms for unbinned distributions Cramer-von Mises test Goodman test (Kolmogorov-Smirnov test in chi-squared approximation) Kolmogorov-Smirnov test Kuiper test

**Recent extensions: algorithms**

Improved tests Fisz-Cramer-von Mises test and Anderson-Darling test exact asymptotic distribution (earlier: critical values) Tiku test Cramer-von Mises test in a chi-squared approximation New tests Weighted Kolmogorov-Smirnov, weighted Cramer-von Mises various weighting functions available in literature Watson test can be applied in case of cyclic observations, like the Kuiper test In preparation Girone test It is the most complete software for the comparison of two distributions, even among commercial/professional statistics tools goal: provide all 2-sample GoF algorithms existing in statistics literature Publication in preparation to describe the new algorithms Software release: March 2006

**User Layer Simple user layer**

Shields the user from the complexity of the underlying algorithms and design Only deal with the user’s analysis objects and choice of comparison algorithm First release: user layer for AIDA analysis objects LCG Architecture Blueprint, Geant4 requirement July 2005: added user layer for ROOT histograms in response to user requirements Other user layer implementations foreseen easy to add sound architecture decouples the mathematical component and the user’s representation of analysis objects

Power of GoF tests Do we really need such a wide collection of GoF tests? Why? Which is the most appropriate test to compare two distributions? How “good” is a test at recognizing real equivalent distributions and rejecting fake ones? Which test to use? No comprehensive study of the relative power of GoF tests exists in literature novel research in statistics (not only in physics data analysis!) Systematic study of all existing GoF tests in progress made possible by the extensive collection of tests in the Statistical Toolkit

Preliminary results No clear winner for all the considered distributions in general the performance of a test depends on its intrinsic features as well as on the features of the distributions to be compared Practical recommendations first classify the type of the distributions in terms of skewness and tailweight choose the most appropriate test given the type of distributions Systematic study of the power in progress for both binned and unbinned distributions Topic still subject to research activity in the domain of statistics Publication in preparation
