Hypothesis Tester

This package contains code to estimate the significance of multiple number counting experiments that contribute to a common signal source (eg. a Higgs boson) including systematic error on the background rate. The uncertainty is included via the Profile Likelihood Ratio. Here the ratios of signal in the different channels is assumed to be known and only a master signal strength is varied (which improves the power).
