gives the inverse of the cumulative distribution function for the distribution dist as a function of the variable q.
- The inverse CDF at q is also referred to as the q quantile of a distribution.
- For a continuous distribution dist the inverse CDF at q is the value x such that CDF[dist,x]q.
- For a discrete distribution dist the inverse CDF at q is the smallest integer x such that CDF[dist,x]≥q.
- The value q can be symbolic or any number between 0 and 1.
