IMSL_FCDF

The IMSL_FCDF function evaluates the F distribution function. Using a keyword, the inverse of the F distribution function can be evaluated.

The IMSL_FCDF function evaluates the distribution function of a Snedecor’s F random variable with dfnum and dfden. The function is evaluated by making a transformation to a beta random variable and then evaluating the incomplete beta function. If X is an F variate with ν1 and ν2 degrees of freedom and Y = (ν1X)/(ν2 + ν1X), then Y is a beta variate with parameters p = ν1/2 and q = ν2/2. The IMSL_FCDF function also uses a relationship between F random variables that is expressed as follows: FF(f, ν1, ν2) = 1 – FF(1/f, ν2, ν1), where FF is the distribution function for an F random variable.

If INVERSE is specified, the IMSL_FCDF function evaluates the inverse distribution function of a Snedecor’s F random variable with ν1 = dfnum numerator degrees of freedom and ν2 = dfden denominator degrees of freedom. The function is evaluated by making a transformation to a beta random variable and then evaluating the inverse of an incomplete beta function.
