cdfnor_x

Calculates the upper limit of integration of a cumulative normal distribution function.

Prototype

	function cdfnor_x (
		p     : numeric,  
		mean  : numeric,  
		sd    : numeric   
	)

	return_val  :  numeric

Arguments

p

A multi-dimensional array or scalar value equal to the integral of the distribution from -infinity to return_val.(0,1)

mean

A multi-dimensional array or scalar value equal to the mean of the distribution (-infinity to +infinity).

sd

A multi-dimensional array or scalar value equal to the standard deviation of the distribution (0 to +infinity).

Return value

A array of the same size as p. Double if any of the input arguments are double, float otherwise.

Description

Calculates the upper limit of integration of a cumulative normal distribution function.

The source code is from source routine "CDFNOR" from DCDFLIB (Double precision Cumulative Distribution Function LIBrary)

Examples

Example 1

     p     = 0.95
     mean  = 0.0
     sd    = 1.0

     x = cdfnor_x(p,mean,sd)
     print("x="+x)                ; x = 1.64485
