jax.scipy.special.erfinv

jax.scipy.special.erfinv(x)[source]

Inverse of the error function erf.

LAX-backend implementation of erfinv(). Original docstring below.

Computes the inverse of the error function.

In complex domain, there is no unique complex number w satisfying erf(w)=z. This indicates a true inverse function would have multi-value. When the domain restricts to the real, -1 < x < 1, there is a unique real number satisfying erf(erfinv(x)) = x.

Returns

erfinv – The inverse of erf of y, element-wise

Return type

ndarray

Examples

  1. evaluating a float number

>>> from scipy import special
>>> special.erfinv(0.5)
0.4769362762044698
  1. evaluating a ndarray

>>> from scipy import special
>>> y = np.linspace(-1.0, 1.0, num=10)
>>> special.erfinv(y)
