IMSL_BETAI

The IMSL_BETAI function evaluates the real incomplete beta function.

This routine requires an IDL Advanced Math and Stats license. For more information, contact your sales or technical support representative.

The incomplete beta function is defined as:

requiring that 0 ≤ X ≤ 1, A > 0, and B > 0. It underflows for sufficiently small X and large A. This underflow is not reported as an error. Instead, the value zero is returned.

Example


In this example, I0.61(2.2, 3.7) is computed and printed.

PM, IMSL_BETAI(.61, 2.2, 3.7)
  0.882172

Syntax


Result = IMSL_BETAI(X, A, B[, /DOUBLE])

Return Value


The value of the incomplete beta function.

Arguments


X

Upper limit of integration.

A

First beta distribution parameter.

B

Second beta distribution parameter.

Keywords


DOUBLE (optional)

If present and nonzero, double precision is used.
