betainc

Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-betainc

Usage

var betainc = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-betainc' );

betainc( x, a, b[, regularized[, upper]] )

By default, evaluates the regularized lower incomplete beta function for inputs x, a > 0 and b > 0. The fourth and fifth parameters of the function can be used to specify whether instead to evaluate the non-regularized and/or upper incomplete beta functions, respectively.

var y = betainc( 0.5, 2.0, 2.0 );
// returns 0.5

y = betainc( 0.5, 2.0, 2.0, false );
// returns ~0.083

y = betainc( 0.2, 1.0, 2.0 );
// returns 0.36

y = betainc( 0.2, 1.0, 2.0, true, true );
// returns 0.64

If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

var y = betainc( NaN, 1.0, 1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = betainc( 0.8, NaN, 1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = betainc( 0.8, 1.0, NaN );
// returns NaN

If provided a x outside the interval [0,1], the function returns NaN.

var y = betainc( 1.5, 1.0, 1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = betainc( -0.5, 1.0, 1.0 );
// returns NaN

If provided a negative a, the function returns NaN.

var y = betainc( 0.5, -2.0, 2.0 );
// returns NaN

If provided a negative b, the function returns NaN.

var y = betainc( 0.5, 2.0, -2.0 );
// returns NaN

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var betainc = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-betainc' );

var i;
var x;
var a;
var b;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = randu();
a = randu() * 10.0;
b = randu() * 10.0;
console.log( 'x: %d, \t a: %d, \t b: %d, \t f(x,a,b): %d', x.toFixed( 4 ), a.toFixed( 4 ), b.toFixed( 4 ), betainc( x, a, b ).toFixed( 4 ) );
}

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
