class beast.fitting.pdf1d.pdf1d(gridvals, nbins, logspacing=False, minval=None, maxval=None)[source]

Create an object which can be used to efficiently generate a 1D pdf for an observed object


gridvals: array-like

values of the quantity for all the grid points

nbins: int

number of bins to use for the 1D pdf

logspacing: bool

whether to use logarithmic spacing for the bins

minval, maxval: float (optional)

override the range for the bins. this can be useful to make sure that the pdfs for different runs have the same bins
