The OXO Signal Extraction Framework
OXO is a C++ signal extraction framework for particle physics with an emphasis on Bayesian statistics. It is written for use in analysis in any particle physics experiment, but its design was informed by SNO+ analyses, particularly the 0\(\nu \beta \beta \) search. In a nutshell, OXO is a set of C++ classes which represent the major elements of an analysis: the probability distribution functions, parametrisations of systematic uncertainty, test statistics and optimisation or sampling algorithms.
