Description: HistFactory: A tool for creating statistical models for use with RooFit and RooStats. The HistFactory is a tool to build parametrized probability density functions (pdfs) in the RooFit/RooStats framework based based on simple ROOT histograms organized in an XML file. The pdf has a restricted form, but it is sufficiently flexible to describe many analyses based on template histograms. The tool takes a modular approach to build complex pdfs from more primative conceptual building blocks. The resulting PDF is stored in a RooWorkspace which can be saved to and read from a ROOT file. This document describes the defaults and interface in HistFactory 5.32.
