ncx2inv

Noncentral chi-square inverse cumulative distribution function

Syntax

X = ncx2inv(P,V,DELTA)

Description

X = ncx2inv(P,V,DELTA) returns the inverse of the noncentral chi-square cdf using the corresponding degrees of freedom in V and positive noncentrality parameters in DELTA, at the corresponding probabilities in P. P, V, and DELTA can be vectors, matrices, or multidimensional arrays that all have the same size, which is also the size of X. A scalar input for P, V, or DELTA is expanded to a constant array with the same dimensions as the other inputs.

Examples

ncx2inv([0.01 0.05 0.1],4,2)
ans =
  0.4858  1.1498  1.7066

Algorithms

ncx2inv uses Newton's method to converge to the solution.
