Algorithm Contents

Mantid contains many algorithms for loading, saving and performing operations on a wide variety of data. The categories below should help you find the algorithm you need. To help with ensuring the Algorithms are found in the most sensible places, they can be in more than one category. If you prefer to search, or know the name you can use the Algorithms Index.

General Algorithms

  • AlgorithmIndex
  • Arithmetic
      Generic mathematical operations on workspaces, including fast fourier transforms.
  • CorrectionFunctions
      Various correction functions including absorption and multiple scattering corrections.
  • DataHandling
      For loading and saving data from a wide variety of formats.
  • Deprecated
      Algorithms in this category are planned for removal in future releases, alternatives are in the algorithm pages.
  • Diagnostics
      Algorithms for performing diagnostics on workspaces.
  • Events
