# stats_cdf_beta

(PECL stats >= 1.0.0)

stats_cdf_betaCDF function for BETA Distribution. Calculates any one parameter of the beta distribution given values for the others.

### Description

float stats_cdf_beta ( float \$par1 , float \$par2 , float \$par3 , int \$which )

Method Cumulative distribution function (P) is calculated directly by code associated with the following reference. DiDinato, A. R. and Morris, A. H. Algorithm 708: Significant Digit Computation of the Incomplete Beta Function Ratios. ACM Trans. Math. Softw. 18 (1993), 360-373. Computation of other parameters involve a search for a value that produces the desired value of P. The search relies on the monotonicity of P with the other parameter. Note The beta density is proportional to t^(A-1) * (1-t)^(B-1) Arguments P -- The integral from 0 to X of the chi-square distribution. Input range: [0, 1]. Q -- 1-P. Input range: [0, 1]. P + Q = 1.0. X -- Upper limit of integration of beta density. Input range: [0,1]. Search range: [0,1] Y -- 1-X. Input range: [0,1]. Search range: [0,1] X + Y = 1.0. A -- The first parameter of the beta density. Input range: (0, +infinity). Search range: [1D-100,1D100] B -- The second parameter of the beta density. Input range: (0, +infinity). Search range: [1D-100,1D100] STATUS -- 0 if calculation completed correctly -I if input parameter number I is out of range 1 if answer appears to be lower than lowest search bound 2 if answer appears to be higher than greatest search bound 3 if P + Q .ne. 1 4 if X + Y .ne. 1 BOUND -- Undefined if STATUS is 0 Bound exceeded by parameter number I if STATUS is negative. Lower search bound if STATUS is 1. Upper search bound if STATUS is 2.

### Parameters

par1

par2

par3

which

Integer indicating which of the next four argument values is to be calculated from the others. Legal range: 1..4 which = 1 : Calculate P and Q from X,Y,A and B which = 2 : Calculate X and Y from P,Q,A and B which = 3 : Calculate A from P,Q,X,Y and B which = 4 : Calculate B from P,Q,X,Y and A

### Return Values

STATUS -- 0 if calculation completed correctly -I if input parameter number I is out of range 1 if answer appears to be lower than lowest search bound 2 if answer appears to be higher than greatest search bound 3 if P + Q .ne. 1 4 if X + Y .ne. 1

Decided to dive into the source code and provide a simple explanation:

Parameters:
int \$which - Select which parameter to use in the CDF Binomial calculation, based on what the prior 3 parameters are.

where \$which is 4:
\$arg1 = p
\$arg2 = sn
\$arg3 = xn
returns pr

\$which = 3
\$arg1 = p
\$arg2 = sn
\$arg3 = pr
returns xn

\$which = 2
\$arg1 = p
\$arg2 = xn
\$arg3 = pr
returns sn

\$which = 1
\$arg1 = sn
\$arg2 = xn
\$arg3 = pr
returns p
