# Cumulative Distribution Function

Lognormal distribution cumulative distribution function.

The cumulative distribution function for a lognormal random variable is

where mu is the location parameter and sigma > 0 is the scale parameter. According to the definition, the natural logarithm of a random variable from a lognormal distribution follows a normal distribution.

## Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-lognormal-cdf 

## Usage

var cdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-lognormal-cdf' ); 

#### cdf( x, mu, sigma )

Evaluates the cumulative distribution function (CDF) for a lognormal distribution with parameters mu (location parameter) and sigma (scale parameter).

var y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, 1.0 ); // returns ~0.756 y = cdf( 5.0, 10.0, 3.0 ); // returns ~0.003 

If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

var y = cdf( NaN, 0.0, 1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 0.0, NaN, 1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 0.0, 0.0, NaN ); // returns NaN 

If provided sigma <= 0, the function returns NaN.

var y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, -1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, 0.0 ); // returns NaN 

#### cdf.factory( mu, sigma )

Returns a function for evaluating the cumulative distribution function of a lognormal distribution with parameters mu (location parameter) and sigma (scale parameter).

var mycdf = cdf.factory( 3.0, 1.5 ); var y = mycdf( 1.0 ); // returns ~0.023 y = mycdf( 4.0 ); // returns ~0.141 

## Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' ); var cdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-lognormal-cdf' ); var sigma; var mu; var x; var y; var i; for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) { x = randu() * 10.0; mu = (randu() * 10.0) - 5.0; sigma = randu() * 20.0; y = cdf( x, mu, sigma ); console.log( 'x: %d, µ: %d, σ: %d, F(x;µ,σ): %d', x.toFixed( 4 ), mu.toFixed( 4 ), sigma.toFixed( 4 ), y.toFixed( 4 ) ); } 

## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
