CDF

CDF[dist,x]
gives the cumulative distribution function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at x.

CDF[dist,{x1,x2,}]
gives the multivariate cumulative distribution function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at .

CDF[dist]
gives the CDF as a pure function.

DetailsDetails

  • CDF[dist,x] gives the probability that an observed value will be less than or equal to x.
  • CDF[dist,x] is equivalent to Probability[ξx,ξdist].
  • CDF[dist,{x1,,xn}] is equivalent to Probability[ξ1x1ξnxn,{ξ1,,ξn}dist].
  • CDF[dist,x] is equivalent to 1-SurvivalFunction[dist,x].
