Tutorial illustrating use and precision of the Double32_t data type You should run this tutorial with ACLIC: a dictionary will be automatically created.

```
root > .x double32.C+
```

The following cases are supported for streaming a Double32_t type depending on the range declaration in the comment field of the data member:

Case | Declaration |
---|---|

A | Double32_t fNormal; |

B | Double32_t fTemperature; //[0,100] |

C | Double32_t fCharge; //[-1,1,2] |

D | Double32_t fVertex[3]; //[-30,30,10] |

E | Double32_t fChi2; //[0,0,6] |

F | Int_t fNsp; Double32_t* fPointValue; //[fNsp][0,3] |

- Case A fNormal is converted from a Double_t to a Float_t
- Case B fTemperature is converted to a 32 bit unsigned integer
- Case C fCharge is converted to a 2 bits unsigned integer
- Case D the array elements of fVertex are converted to an unsigned 10 bits integer
- Case E fChi2 is converted to a Float_t with truncated precision at 6 bits
- Case F the fNsp elements of array fPointvalue are converted to an unsigned 32 bit integer. Note that the range specifier must follow the dimension specifier.

Case B has more precision than case A: 9 to 10 significative digits and 6 to 7 digits respectively. The range specifier has the general format: [xmin,xmax] or [xmin,xmax,nbits]. Examples

- [0,1]
- [-10,100];
- [-pi,pi], [-pi/2,pi/4],[-2pi,2*pi]
- [-10,100,16]
- [0,0,8] Note that:
- If nbits is not specified, or nbits <2 or nbits>32 it is set to 32
- If (xmin==0 and xmax==0 and nbits <=14) the double word will be converted to a float and its mantissa truncated to nbits significative bits.

Lets assume an original variable double x. When using the format [0,0,8] (i.e. range not specified) you get the best relative precision when storing and reading back the truncated x, say xt. The variance of (x-xt)/x will be better than when specifying a range for the same number of bits. However the precision relative to the range (x-xt)/(xmax-xmin) will be worse, and vice-versa. The format [0,0,8] is also interesting when the range of x is infinite or unknown.

```

In [2]:

```
const auto nEntries = 40000;
const auto xmax = TMath::Pi();
const auto xmin = -xmax;
```

Create a tree with nentries objects demodouble32

In [3]:

```
TFile::Open("DemoDouble32.root", "recreate");
TTree tree("tree", "DemoDouble32");
DemoDouble32 demoInstance;
auto demoInstanceBranch = tree.Branch("d", "DemoDouble32", &demoInstance, 4000);
TRandom3 r;
for (auto i : ROOT::TSeqI(nEntries)) {
demoInstance.Set(r.Uniform(xmin, xmax));
tree.Fill();
}
tree.Write();
```

Now we can proceed with the analysis of the sizes on disk of all branches

Create the frame histogram and the graphs

In [4]:

```
auto branches = demoInstanceBranch->GetListOfBranches();
const auto nb = branches->GetEntries();
auto br = static_cast<TBranch *>(branches->At(0));
const Long64_t zip64 = br->GetZipBytes();
auto h = new TH1F("h", "Double32_t compression and precision", nb, 0, nb);
h->SetMaximum(18);
h->SetStats(0);
auto gcx = new TGraph();
gcx->SetName("gcx");
gcx->SetMarkerStyle(kFullSquare);
gcx->SetMarkerColor(kBlue);
auto gdrange = new TGraph();
gdrange->SetName("gdrange");
gdrange->SetMarkerStyle(kFullCircle);
gdrange->SetMarkerColor(kRed);
auto gdval = new TGraph();
gdval->SetName("gdval");
gdval->SetMarkerStyle(kFullTriangleUp);
gdval->SetMarkerColor(kBlack);
```

Loop on branches to get the precision and compression factors

In [5]:

```
for (auto i : ROOT::TSeqI(nb)) {
auto br = static_cast<TBranch *>(branches->At(i));
const auto brName = br->GetName();
h->GetXaxis()->SetBinLabel(i + 1, brName);
const auto cx = double(zip64) / br->GetZipBytes();
gcx->SetPoint(i, i + 0.5, cx);
if (i == 0 ) continue;
tree.Draw(Form("(fD64-%s)/(%g)", brName, xmax - xmin), "", "goff");
const auto rmsDrange = TMath::RMS(nEntries, tree.GetV1());
const auto drange = TMath::Max(0., -TMath::Log10(rmsDrange));
gdrange->SetPoint(i-1, i + 0.5, drange);
tree.Draw(Form("(fD64-%s)/fD64", brName), "", "goff");
const auto rmsDVal = TMath::RMS(nEntries, tree.GetV1());
const auto dval = TMath::Max(0., -TMath::Log10(rmsDVal));
gdval->SetPoint(i-1, i + 0.5, dval);
tree.Draw(Form("(fD64-%s) >> hdvalabs_%s", brName, brName), "", "goff");
auto hdval = gDirectory->Get<TH1F>(Form("hdvalabs_%s", brName));
hdval->GetXaxis()->SetTitle("Difference wrt reference value");
auto c = new TCanvas(brName, brName, 800, 600);
c->SetGrid();
c->SetLogy();
hdval->DrawClone();
}
auto c1 = new TCanvas("c1", "c1", 800, 600);
c1->SetGrid();
h->Draw();
h->GetXaxis()->LabelsOption("v");
gcx->Draw("lp");
gdrange->Draw("lp");
gdval->Draw("lp");
```

Finally build a legend

In [6]:

```
auto legend = new TLegend(0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 0.9);
legend->SetHeader(Form("%d entries within the [-#pi, #pi] range", nEntries));
legend->AddEntry(gcx, "Compression factor", "lp");
legend->AddEntry(gdrange, "Log of precision wrt range: p = -Log_{10}( RMS( #frac{Ref - x}{range} ) ) ", "lp");
legend->AddEntry(gdval, "Log of precision wrt value: p = -Log_{10}( RMS( #frac{Ref - x}{Ref} ) ) ", "lp");
legend->Draw();
```

Draw all canvases

In [7]:

```
%jsroot on
gROOT->GetListOfCanvases()->Draw()
```
