Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-909) FDistribution NoBracketingException in BrentSolver
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2012 09:11:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-909?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13503683#comment-13503683
] 

Thomas Neidhart commented on MATH-909:
--------------------------------------

I tested it with the latest trunk version, and the result is: 0.9730779455126357

The FDistribution relies on the Beta function, which got several improvements in terms of
accuracy since the 3.0 release.
Could you please test yourself with a more recent version of CM?

Thanks,

Thomas

> I get an exception when running the code below. the exception is 
> {code}
> function values at endpoints do not have different signs, endpoints: [0, 1.002], values:
[-0.025, -∞]
> {code}
> The problematic code:
> {code}
> double df1 = 10675;
> double df2 = 501725;
> FDistribution fDist = new FDistribution(df1, df2);
> System.out.println(fDist.inverseCumulativeProbability(0.025));//NoBracketingException
> {code}
> However, R returns the value 0.9733505. The R code is:
> {code}
> qf(p=.025, df1=10675, df2=501725)
> {code}
> I don't know enough about the FDistribution class to know the solution to the exception,
but I thought I would report it.
