Error Function distribution | Vose Software

Error Function distribution

Format: Erf(h)


The Error Function distribution is derived from a normal distribution by setting m = 0 and s = 1/(h*SQRT(2)). Therefore the uses are the same as those of the Normal distribution.

ModelRisk functions added to Microsoft Excel for the Error Function distribution

VoseErf generates random values from this distribution for Monte Carlo simulation, or calculates a percentile if used with a U parameter.

VoseErfObject constructs a distribution object for this distribution.

VoseErfProb returns the probability density or cumulative distribution function for this distribution.

VoseErfProb10 returns the log10 of the probability density or cumulative distribution function.

VoseErfFit generates values from this distribution fitted to data, or calculates a percentile from the fitted distribution.

VoseErfFitObject constructs a distribution object of this distribution fitted to data.

VoseErfFitP returns the parameters of this distribution fitted to data.
