J. I see that C++ has added erfinv, but Fortran doesn't tend to follow C++. Steve - Intel Developer Support Top William S. Intermediate levels of Im(ƒ)=constant are shown with thin green lines.

However, it can be extended to the disk |z| < 1 of the complex plane, using the Maclaurin series erf − 1 ( z ) = ∑ k = 0 Math. 13, 459-470, 1963. Press, William H.; Teukolsky, Saul A.; Vetterling, William T.; Flannery, Brian P. (2007), "Section 6.2.

The TMath/DMath library did not have it :( delphi math pascal share|improve this question asked May 11 '11 at 23:46 Mike Furlender 1,52422053 do you mean inverse erf? –soandos But you may not get the full REAL*8 accuracy. Top Steve Lionel (Intel) Tue, 04/15/2014 - 17:43 You need to select the "Use Intel Math Kernel Library" option under Fortran > Libraries. You can use this from MKL but it is defined on arrays only.

Looks like the Jedi math library needs lots of work. –Warren P May 12 '11 at 13:50 @David Wow, thanks a ton! Erfinv Approximation Exploded Suffixes **What does it actually mean by** specified time? It satisfies the equation (8) where is the inverse erfc function. Why did my electrician put metal plates wherever the stud is drilled through?

Top billsincl Tue, 04/15/2014 - 15:20 That thing that mecej4 sent me doesn't work either. These generalised functions can equivalently be expressed for x>0 using the Gamma function and incomplete Gamma function: E n ( x ) = 1 π Γ ( n ) ( Γ Practice online or make a printable study sheet. If L is sufficiently far from the mean, i.e. μ − L ≥ σ ln k {\displaystyle \mu -L\geq \sigma {\sqrt {\ln {k}}}} , then: Pr [ X ≤ L

pbkenned1 Tue, 04/15/2014 - 13:35 The IMSL package add-on has ERFI, but I don't think it is a part of standard Intel Fortran. Can you expand on 'it does exist for When the error function is evaluated for arbitrary complex arguments z, the resulting complex error function is usually discussed in scaled form as the Faddeeva function: w ( z ) = Error Function In Fortran 90 Example: program test_erf real(8) :: x = 0.17_8 x = erf(x) end program test_erf Specific names: Name Argument Return type Standard DERF(X) REAL(8) X REAL(8) GNU extension Error function From Inverse Error Function C++ Code W.

Q : (1.0-Q); double T = sqrt( -2.0*log(QF)); double X = T - ((NORX_C2*T + NORX_C1)*T + NORX_C0) /(((NORX_D3*T + NORX_D2)*T + NORX_D1)*T + 1.0); double SPI2 = sqrt( 2.0 * weblink Parker, F.D. "Integrals of Inverse Functions." Amer. Not a member? This page has been accessed 11,172 times. Erfinv C++

Continued fraction expansion[edit] A continued fraction expansion of the complementary error function is:[11] erfc ( z ) = z π e − z 2 1 z 2 + a 1 None of them in fact. Your cache administrator is webmaster. http://jamisonsoftware.com/error-function/gaussian-error-function-inverse.php Is it mathematically too complicated (it's been a while, too lazy to run now to our library to consult the math handbooks), or the methods approximate or involve more intricate details,

The inverse error function is usually defined with domain (−1,1), and it is restricted to this domain in many computer algebra systems. p.297. Sometimes the approximations are to less than 6 decimal places accuracy, I read.

Using the alternate value a≈0.147 reduces the maximum error to about 0.00012.[12] This approximation can also be inverted to calculate the inverse error function: erf − 1 ( x )

After division by n!, all the En for odd n look similar (but not identical) to each other.

For complex double arguments, the function names cerf and cerfc are "reserved for future use"; the missing implementation is provided by the open-source project libcerf, which is based on the Faddeeva Also has erfi for calculating i erf ( i x ) {\displaystyle i\operatorname {erf} (ix)} Maple: Maple implements both erf and erfc for real and complex arguments. Const highestElement = 20000000; Type ArbFloat = double; // can be extended too. I think the implementation in the Pascal for Scientists for erf is better than the erf here. –Warren P May 12 '11 at 13:40 @Warren Not according to my

Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables. It's used all the time. This is useful, for example, in determining the bit error rate of a digital communication system. The error and complementary error functions occur, for example, in solutions of the heat equation when boundary conditions are given by the Heaviside step function.
