# A new version of minuit program for a PDP11/34A computer system

## Description

Title of program: PDP-MINUIT Catalogue Id: ACWH_v2_0 [AAVP] Nature of problem A large number of problems can be reduced to the problem of finding the minimum value taken on by a function of one or more variable parameters. The classic example is the estimation of unknown parameters in a theory by minimizing the difference (chi-square) between theory and experimental data and the establishment of the errors of these parameters. In this kind of problem the theory is represented by a function F(xi), where xi are the unknown parameters of the theory.
