Cumulative Distribution Function of the Generalized Normal Distribution


This function computes the cumulative probability or nonexceedance probability of the Generalized Normal distribution given parameters (ξ, α, and κ) computed by pargno. The cumulative distribution function is

F(x) = Φ(Y) \mbox{,}

where Φ is the cumulative distribution function of the Standard Normal distribution and Y is

Y = -κ^{-1} \log≤ft(1 - \frac{κ(x-ξ)}{α}\right)\mbox{,}

for κ \ne 0 and

Y = (x-ξ)/α\mbox{,}

for κ = 0, where F(x) is the nonexceedance probability for quantile x, ξ is a location parameter, α is a scale parameter, and κ is a shape parameter.
