gives the inverse of the survival function for the distribution dist as a function of the variable q.
- The inverse survival function at q is equivalent to the (1-q) 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.
