# `stats`::`weibullCDF`

Cumulative distribution function of the Weibull distribution

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

## Syntax

```stats::weibullCDF(`a`, `b`)
```

## Description

`stats::weibullCDF(a, b)` returns a procedure representing the cumulative distribution function

of the Weibull distribution with shape parameter a > 0 and scale parameter b > 0.

The procedure `f := stats::weibullCDF(a, b)` can be called in the form `f(x)` with an arithmetical expression `x`. The return value of `f(x)` is either a floating-point number or a symbolic expression:

If x ≤ 0 can be decided, then `f(x)` returns `0`. If x ≥ 0 can be decided, then `f(x)` returns the value ```1 - exp(-(x/b)^a)```.

If x is a floating-point number and both a and b can be converted to positive floating-point numbers, then these values are returned as floating-point numbers. Otherwise, symbolic expressions are returned.

The function `f` reacts to properties of identifiers set via `assume`. If x is a symbolic expression with the property x ≤ 0 or x ≥ 0, the corresponding values are returned.

The call `f(- infinity )` returns `0`.

The call `f( infinity )` returns `1`.

`f(x)` returns the symbolic call ```stats::weibullCDF(a, b)(x)``` if neither x ≤ 0 nor x ≥ 0 can be decided.

Numerical values for `a` and `b` are only accepted if they are real and positive.

## Environment Interactions

The function is sensitive to the environment variable `DIGITS` which determines the numerical working precision. The procedure generated by `stats::weibullCDF` reacts to properties of identifiers set via `assume`.

## Examples

### Example 1

We evaluate the cumulative distribution function with `a` = 2 and `b` = 1 at various points:

```f := stats::weibullCDF(2, 1): f(-infinity), f(-3), f(0.5), f(2/3), f(PI), f(infinity)```

`delete f:`

### Example 2

If `x` is a symbolic object without properties, then it cannot be decided whether x ≥ 0 holds. A symbolic function call is returned:

`f := stats::weibullCDF(a, b): f(x)`

With suitable properties, it can be decided whether x ≥ 0 holds. An explicit expression is returned:

`assume(0 < x): f(x)`

`unassume(x): delete f:`

### Example 3

We use symbolic arguments:

`f := stats::weibullCDF(a, b): f(x)`

When numerical values are assigned to `a` and `b`, the function `f` starts to produce numerical values:

`a := 2: b := 1: f(3), f(3.0)`

`delete f, a, b:`

## Parameters

 `a` The shape parameter: an arithmetical expression representing a positive real value `b` The scale parameter: an arithmetical expression representing a positive real value
