y=cochcdf(X,k,v)
```function y=cochcdf(X,k,v)
%Cochran's cumulative distribution function.
%Returns the Cochran's C cumulative distribution function
%with k variances and v degrees of freedom at the values in X.
% [Gives the p-value associated to the Cochran's statistics ratio
% of the largest S^2 to their total (max(S^2)/sum(S^2)) (Cochran, 1941)].
%
%   Syntax: function y=cochcdf(X,k,v)
%
%     Inputs:
% 	        X - Cochran's statistics.
% 	        k - number of variances.
% 	        v - number of degrees of freedom for each variance.
% The input quantities should be scalars.
