InverseSurvivalFunction

InverseSurvivalFunction[dist,q]
gives the inverse of the survival function for the symbolic distribution dist as a function of the variable q.

DetailsDetails

  • The inverse survival function at q is equivalent to the ^(th) quantile of a distribution.
  • For a continuous distribution dist, the inverse survival function at q is the value x such that SurvivalFunction[dist,x]q.
  • For a discrete distribution dist, the inverse survival function at q is the smallest integer x such that SurvivalFunction[dist,x]q.
  • The value q can be symbolic or any number between 0 and 1.
