Physics Analysis Workstation

Physics Analysis Workstation

The Physics Analysis Workstation (PAW) is an interactive, scriptable open source tool for data analysis and graphical presentation in high energy physics. Developed at CERN since 1986, it is optimized for processing very large amounts of data. It is based on and intended for interoperation with components of CERNLIB, an extensive collection of Fortran libraries.

PAW is conceived as an instrument to assist physicists in the analysis and presentation of their data. It provides interactive graphical presentation and statistical or mathematical analysis, working on objects familiar to physicists like histograms, event files (Ntuples), vectors, etc.

It may be run in batch mode if desired for very large and time consuming data analyses; typically, however, the user will decide on an analysis procedure interactively before running a batch job.

The purpose of PAW is to provide many common analysis and display procedures that would be duplicated needlessly by individual programmers, to supply a flexible way to invoke these common procedures, and yet also to allow user customization where necessary.
