Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-282) ChiSquaredDistributionImpl.cumulativeProbability > 1
Date Sun, 11 Oct 2009 21:54:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-282?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12764514#action_12764514

Phil Steitz commented on MATH-282:
----------------------------------

The problem in Gamma.regularizedGammaP reported here is also causing incorrect results from
PoissonDistributionImpl#cumulativeProbability.  The (currently disabled) test case, testCumulativeProbabilitySpecial()
in PoissonDistributionTest illustrates the problem.  For some (not all) large lambda and some
(not all) x in (0.9 * lambda, lambda), NaN or zero cumulative probabilities are returned.

> ChiSquaredDistributionImpl.cumulativeProbability > 1
