cdf(var x): var

Cumulative distribution function; the probability that a Gaussian (normal) distributed variable takes a value less than or equal to x. Often used to compress the variable to the 0..1 range. Sometimes also referred to as pnorm(x).

qnorm(var x): var

The inverse cdf function; returns the value whose cumulative distribution matches the probability x.

dnorm(var x, var mu, var sigma): var

Gaussian probability; returns the probability of the value x in a normal distribution with mean mu and variance sigma

Parameters:

x - any var.

Example:

x = cdf(1); // x is now 0.84 
x = cdf(-1); // x is now 0.16
