sci-libs / minuit

A C++ physics analysis tool for function minimization

Official package sites : ·

Minuit provides a C++ library for non-linear optimization, and parameter error estimation. Widely used in High Energy Physics, originally as a fortran library, it has been entirely re-written from scratch in C++. It is now included in ROOT-5 and higher. This is the stand-alone version, quick to build and use.

Move {app-doc → app-text}/doxygen
Per the category metadata, app-doc/ is reserved for documentation *files* and not software. Move it to app-text/ where it seems a better fit. Signed-off-by: Michał Górny <>

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
