Description Usage Arguments Value

Computes the pth quantile of a cumulative distribution function using a simple binary serach algorithm. This can be extremely slow but has the benefit of being trivial to implement.

1 | ```
binaryQuantileSearch(pDistFunc, p, lastLeft, lastRight, error = 10^-4)
``` |

`pDistFunc` |
a cumulative distribution function on the real numbers, it should take a single argument x and return the cumualtive distribution function evaluated at x. |

`p` |
the quantile |

`lastLeft` |
binary search works by continuously decreasing the search space from the left and right. lastLeft should be a lower bound for the quantile p. |

`lastRight` |
similar to lastRight but should be an upper bound. |

`error` |
the error tolerated from the binary search |

the quantile (within error).
