Thomas Neidhart commented on MATH738:

The deprecated method has been removed for 4.0.
> Incomplete beta function I(x, a, b) is inaccurate for large values of a and/or b
> 
>
> Key: MATH738
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH738
> Project: Commons Math
> Issue Type: Bug
> Affects Versions: 3.0
> Reporter: Sébastien Brisard
> Labels: specialfunctions
> Fix For: 4.0
>
>
> This was first reported in MATH718. The result of the current implementation of the
incomplete beta function I(x, a, b) is inaccurate when a and/or b are largeish.
> I've skimmed through [slatechttp://www.netlib.org/slatec/fnlib/betai.f], GSL, [Boosthttp://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_38_0/libs/math/doc/sf_and_dist/html/math_toolkit/special/sf_beta/ibeta_function.html]
as well as NR. At first sight, neither uses the same method to compute this function. I think
[TOMS708http://www.netlib.org/toms/708] is probably the best option.
