The programme WKM, based on the CERN fitting library MINUIT and developed
by Wolfgang Kopmann in Braunschweig, can be used to analyse time-spectra
by fitting to various pre-defined signal types.
It can perform single histograms fits, asymmetry fits or asymmetry
fits in a rotating frame.
The programme is available at PSI on the AFS tree for the Linux
In order to use the programme, the following points should be performed
- Convert the PSI-bin data files into WKM ASCII format.
To perform that you should run the script /afs/psi.ch/user/a/amato/public/wkmconvert
which should be self-explanatory.
- In your .bash_profile file some variables should
be defined as follows
where /your_directory represent the
directory where your WKM data files are located.
- Add the following lines in your .emacs file
;;; setting load path for emacs lisp file wkm-mode.elc ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
(setq load-path (cons "/afs/psi.ch/project/nemu/analysis/WKM/lisp/"
;;; autoload wkm-mode with .msr files
(setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.msr\\'" . wkm-mode) auto-mode-alist))
(autoload 'wkm-mode "wkm-mode")
- When loading a .msr file into emacs,
the WKM options should now be available.

Two .msr files (single fit and asymmetry fit) and
a WKM format data file can be found here .
