Details

erf_re and erfc_re calculate the error function and the complementary error function, respectively; erfc1_re calculates the complementary error function for n=1 (see references), and erfc0_re is equivalent to erfc_re (n=0).

ierf_re and ierfc_re calculate the inverse error function and the inverse complementary error function, respectively.

Note

These generally use pnorm and qnorm; but, where necessary, RcppFaddeeva's implementation (erf, etc.) is used.
