gives the inverse error function obtained as the solution for z in s=erf(z).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • Explicit numerical values are given only for real values of s between -1 and +1.
  • InverseErf[z0, s] gives the inverse of the generalized error function Erf[z0, z].
  • For certain special arguments, InverseErf automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • InverseErf can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
