scipy.special.btdtria¶

scipy.special.btdtria(p, b, x) = <ufunc 'btdtria'>

Inverse of btdtr with respect to a.

This is the inverse of the beta cumulative distribution function, btdtr, considered as a function of a, returning the value of a for which btdtr(a, b, x) = p, or

$p = \int_0^x \frac{\Gamma(a + b)}{\Gamma(a)\Gamma(b)} t^{a-1} (1-t)^{b-1}\,dt$
Parameters: p : array_like Cumulative probability, in [0, 1]. b : array_like Shape parameter (b > 0). x : array_like The quantile, in [0, 1]. a : ndarray The value of the shape parameter a such that btdtr(a, b, x) = p.

btdtr
Cumulative density function of the beta distribution.
btdtri
Inverse with respect to x.
btdtrib
Inverse with respect to b.

Notes

Wrapper for the CDFLIB [R386] Fortran routine cdfbet.

The cumulative distribution function p is computed using a routine by DiDinato and Morris [R387]. Computation of a involves a seach for a value that produces the desired value of p. The search relies on the monotinicity of p with a.
