SurvivalFunction

SurvivalFunction
gives the survival function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at x.
SurvivalFunction
gives the multivariate survival function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at .
SurvivalFunction[dist]
gives the survival function as a pure function.
  • SurvivalFunction gives the probability that an observed value is greater than x.
