InverseCDF

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

DetailsDetails

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