Very important: Your browser must understand JavaScript! Try Netscape 3.0. | It happens sometimes that pressing the buttons has no effect at all. This seems to be a bug of the JavaScript-interpreter. (With Netscape 3.0 I have not observed this error yet!). Try to reload this document. Or try to switch to part 1 and back to part 2. |
There are two parts: Part 1 (Continuous distribution functions) enables you to calculate cumulative distribution functions and their inverse functions. For discrete random variables (Part 2, this page) you enjoy the possibility to calculate probability and cumulative probability functions. | Almost all algorithms were converted from Turbo Pascal to JavaScript (Source: Numerical Recipes in Pascal). The books of Johnson+Kotz (Continuous Distributions I+II, Discrete Distributions) were also used. |
You must use the decimal point! | As input simple numbers but also mathematical more complex expressions are allowed. For example the input of Mu=1 and Sigma=1 for the normal distribution gives the same result as Mu=3*Math.pow(4,1/2)-5 and Sigma=2*Math.sin(Math.PI/2)-1 or Mu=3-2 and Sigma=-1+2*1. |
You are allowed to copy
the necessary files (zipped in tables_e.zip (29 k).
Please do not change anything and always indicate the source. |
The computation of the inverse of the F-distribution sometimes fails! | The algorithms of the inverse of the Gamma and the Chi-Square-distribution are quite slow, so please wait for a few seconds! |
The cumulative distribution function of the Hypergeometric distribution is calculated exactly (simple additions), that's why I've restricted the computation: If more than 100 additions have to be done, the calculation is interrupted! | For n>2000 the normal distribution is used instead of the t-distribution. |
Don't try to type in something like "@#%", only an error will occur (and no usable result). So please concentrate and don't try any tricks! | I've tried my best, but I give no warranty that the algorithms work correctly under all circumstances. If you are sure to have recognised an error, please send me an e-mail. Tell me the name of the distribution and the values of the parameters that have produced the wrong result. |
I don't give any warranty for the correctness of all calculations! An advice: if you need to calculate F(x) out of x, so calculate also the inverse function of F(x), then the original value x should appear. With Copy and Paste this is done in a few seconds ! |
