ErrorFnC Inv

 
doubleerrorFnC_invdoubley )
The inverse of the complementary error function is defined as the function \mathrm{erfc}^{-1}:(0,2) \rightarrow \mathbb{R} which satisfies:

where \displaystyle \mathrm{erfc} is the complementary error function. Some special values are:

The graph of this function is shown below.
There is an error with your graph parameters for errorFnC_inv with options y=0:2

Error Message:Function errorFnC_inv failed. Ensure that: --2147483648.0000000000

The following property also holds:

where \displaystyle \mathrm{erf}^{-1} is the inverse of the error function. Based on this last formula, you may notice how the output of the example code below is linked to the example output in the errorFn_inv module.

Example 1

#include <codecogs/maths/special/errorfnc_inv.h>
#include <stdio.h>
 
int main(  )
{
  // display the value of the function at important points
  printf("x = 0     y = %.15lf\n",   Maths::Special::errorFnC_inv(0.0));
  printf("x = 1     y = %.15lf\n",   Maths::Special::errorFnC_inv(1.0));
  printf("x = 2     y = %.15lf\n\n", Maths::Special::errorFnC_inv(2.0));
 
  // display several values of the function
  // at equally spaced abscissas with a step of 0.1
  for (double x = 1.1; x < 1.99; x += 0.1)
    printf("x = %.1lf   y = %.15lf\n", 
    x, Maths::Special::errorFnC_inv(x));
 
  return 0;
}

Output

x = 1     y = 0.000000000000000
x = 2     y = -1.#INF00000000000
 
x = 1.1   y = -0.088855990494258

x = 1.3   y = -0.272462714726755
x = 1.4   y = -0.370807158593558
x = 1.5   y = -0.476936276204471
x = 1.6   y = -0.595116081449996
x = 1.7   y = -0.732869077959218
x = 1.8   y = -0.906193802436824
x = 1.9   y = -1.163087153676677

Parameters
