When erf(x) is close to 1, then 1 - erf(x) is a small number and might be rounded down to 0.

On the other hand, for the **applications where** the error function is to be evaluated at complex values (spectroscopy, for instance), probably the more "natural" function to consider is Faddeeva's (or All generalised error functions for n>0 look similar on the positive x side of the graph. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_function

Both functions are overloaded to accept arguments of type float, double, and long double. Error Function Calculator Erf satisfies the identities (2) (3) (4) where is erfc, the complementary error function, and is a confluent hypergeometric function of the first kind. Inverse Error Function The most reasonable expression I've found is that $$P(|N| < x) = \erf(x/\sqrt{2}).$$ This at least gets rid of all but one of the apparently spurious constants, but still has a

Intermediate levels of Re(ƒ)=constant are shown with thin red lines for negative values and with thin blue lines for positive values. The relationship between the error function erf and normcdf is normcdf(x)=12(1−erf(−x2)).For expressions of the form 1 - erf(x), use the complementary error function erfc instead.

I may be biased: as a probabilist, I think much more naturally in terms of $\Phi$. H. Math. Your cache administrator is webmaster.

Analytic Theory of Continued Fractions. D: A D package[16] exists providing efficient and accurate implementations of complex error functions, along with Dawson, Faddeeva, and Voigt functions.

The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. The error function $\erf$ is defined by $$\erf(x) = \frac{2}{\sqrt{\pi}} \int_0^x e^{-t^2}dt.$$ Of course, it is closely related to the normal cdf $$\Phi(x) = P(N < x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \int_{-\infty}^x e^{-t^2/2}dt$$ Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License; additional terms may apply.
