dinvchi(x, df, ncp = 0, log = FALSE)

pinvchi(q, df, ncp = 0, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

qinvchi(p, df, ncp = 0, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

rinvchi(n, df, ncp = 0)

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

df

degrees of freedom (non-negative, but can be non-integer).

ncp

non-centrality parameter (non-negative).

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x] otherwise, P[X > x].

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required.
