For the record, here is a version without using the Integrate function. It is based on algorithm AS 3, published as a Fortran program in Applied Statistics (1968). This version includes an improved input routine for the degrees of freedom in that it checks whether the input is a positive integer. Again, both the PDF and CDF are returned on the stack (in Y and X). Code for the inverse is not yet included.

Here is Thomas' sample case:

[XEQ] T [ENTER]             J=?

Enter degrees of freedom
     7  [R/S]               X=?

Enter random variable X
    1,5 [R/S]               0,126263061   // =PDF(1,5|7)
                            0,911350757   // =CDF(1,5|7)
Do another calculation
        [R/S]               X=?
    -2  [R/S]               0,063135337   // =PDF(-2|7)
                            0,042809664   // =CDF(-2|7)

Final remark: like the other programs discussed in this thread, this is a rather simple and straightforward implementation that works fine for most practical cases. However, far out in the distribution tails the results may lose accuracy due to rounding, and eventually values may round to 0 or 1. For instance, for 7 d.o.f. and x=–100 you will get a CDF of 2,000...E–12 while the exact result is 1,318 E–12, and for x=0 the returned result is zero while it actually is 1,69 E–17. If you want more or less exact values even for such extreme arguments, a different approach is required.


Dieter, perfect!. I will try this option also. Thanks
I am preparing a compiled program pdf for Chi-Square to publish in the Forum
