This is useful, for example, in determining the bit error rate of a digital communication system. J. (March 1993), "Algorithm 715: SPECFUN—A portable FORTRAN package of special function routines and test drivers" (PDF), ACM Trans. J.

The inverse error function is usually defined with domain (−1,1), and it is restricted to this domain in many computer algebra systems.

This directly results from the fact that the integrand e − t 2 {\displaystyle e^{-t^ − 2}} is an even function.

Intermediate levels of Re(ƒ)=constant are shown with thin red lines for negative values and with thin blue lines for positive values. Opportunities for recent engineering grads. ISBN0-486-61272-4.

Derivative and integral[edit] The derivative of the error function follows immediately from its definition: d d z erf ( z ) = 2 π e − z 2 . {\displaystyle In order of increasing accuracy, they are: erf ( x ) ≈ 1 − 1 ( 1 + a 1 x + a 2 x 2 + a 3 x Intermediate levels of Im(ƒ)=constant are shown with thin green lines.

The integrand ƒ=exp(−z2) and ƒ=erf(z) are shown in the complex z-plane in figures 2 and 3. Other ways to access the newsgroups Use a newsreader through your school, employer, or internet service provider Pay for newsgroup access from a commercial provider Use Google Groups Mathforum.org provides a Mathematica: erf is implemented as Erf and Erfc in Mathematica for real and complex arguments, which are also available in Wolfram Alpha. The denominator terms are sequence A007680 in the OEIS.

Tagging provides a way to see both the big trends and the smaller, more obscure ideas and applications. For large enough values of x, only the first few terms of this asymptotic expansion are needed to obtain a good approximation of erfc(x) (while for not too large values of J.; Lozier, Daniel M.; Boisvert, Ronald F.; Clark, Charles W., NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, Cambridge University Press, ISBN978-0521192255, MR2723248 External links[edit] MathWorld – Erf Authority control NDL: 00562553 Retrieved from Error Function Distribution Graphs and Properties EasyFit displays all graphs and properties of the Error Function distribution, presenting the results in an easy to read & understand manner.

This usage is similar to the Q-function, which in fact can be written in terms of the error function. LCCN65-12253. Positive integer values of Im(f) are shown with thick blue lines. To use these approximations for negative x, use the fact that erf(x) is an odd function, so erf(x)=−erf(−x).
