Generate probabilities and quantiles from several
This module provides a perl interface to the DCDFLIB. See the section on
the DCDFLIB manpage for more information.
Functions are available for 7 continuous distributions (Beta, Chi-square,
F, Gamma, Normal, Poisson and T-distribution) and for two discrete
distributions (Binomial and Negative Binomial). Optional non-centrality
parameters are available for the Chi-square, F and T-distributions.
Cumulative probabilities are available for all 9 distributions and quantile
functions are available for the 7 continuous distributions.
All cumulative probability function names begin with the character "p".
They give the probability of being less than or equal to the given value [
'P(X <= x)' ]
All quantile function names begin with the character q. They give a value
of x such that 'P(X <= x)' = p where the value of p is provided to the
Non-centrality parameters are always the last function argument when
available. You do not need to supply the non-centrality parameter in which
case it will be assumed to be 0.
All functions will return an undefined value if the function fails
(probably due to parameters being out of allowed range) but will not
otherwise generate an error message. The user should check for valid output
from the Math::CDF functions with the 'defined()' function as demonstrated
in the the SYNOPSIS manpage section.
