scipy.special.bdtri¶

scipy.special.bdtri(k, n, y) = <ufunc 'bdtri'>

Inverse function to bdtr with respect to p.

Finds the event probability p such that the sum of the terms 0 through k of the binomial probability density is equal to the given cumulative probability y.

Parameters
karray_like

Number of successes (float), rounded down to the nearest integer.

narray_like

Number of events (float)

yarray_like

Cumulative probability (probability of k or fewer successes in n events).

Returns
pndarray

The event probability such that bdtr(lfloor k rfloor, n, p) = y.

Notes

The computation is carried out using the inverse beta integral function and the relation,:

1 - p = betaincinv(n - k, k + 1, y).


Wrapper for the Cephes [1] routine bdtri.
