CDF

CDF[dist, x]
gives the cumulative distribution function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at x.

CDF[dist, {x1, x2, ...}]
gives the multivariate cumulative distribution function for the symbolic distribution dist evaluated at .

CDF[dist]
gives the CDF as a pure function.

DetailsDetails

  • CDF[dist, x] gives the probability that an observed value will be less than or equal to x.
  • CDF[dist, x] is equivalent to Probability[x, Distributeddist].
  • CDF[dist, {x1, ..., xn}] is equivalent to Probability[1x1nxn, {1, ..., n}Distributeddist].
  • CDF[dist, x] is equivalent to 1-SurvivalFunction[dist, x].
