scipy.special.gdtrix

scipy.special.gdtrix(a, b, p, out=None) = <ufunc 'gdtrix'>

Inverse of gdtr vs x.

Returns the inverse with respect to the parameter x of p = gdtr(a, b, x), the cumulative distribution function of the gamma distribution. This is also known as the p’th quantile of the distribution.

Parameters :

a : array_like

a parameter values of gdtr(a, b, x). 1/a is the “scale” parameter of the gamma distribution.

b : array_like

b parameter values of gdtr(a, b, x). b is the “shape” parameter of the gamma distribution.

p : array_like

Probability values.

out : ndarray, optional

If a fourth argument is given, it must be a numpy.ndarray whose size matches the broadcast result of a, b and x. out is then the array returned by the function.

Returns :

x : ndarray

Values of the x parameter such that p = gdtr(a, b, x).

Examples

First evaluate gdtr.

>>> p = gdtr(1.2, 3.4, 5.6)
>>> print(p)
0.94378087442

Verify the inverse.

>>> gdtrix(1.2, 3.4, p)
5.5999999999999996
