Hi guys...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

don't suppose anybody knows how to calculate the error function - erf(x)

I know Matlab can calculate it - but is it possible to evaluate it without computational techniques (i.e. using computers)?

[tex] {erf}(x) = \frac{2}{\sqrt{\pi}}\int_0^x e^{-t^2} dt.[/tex]

Would appreciate any feedback.

thanks.

The link below will direct you to a website where the equation can be viewed...
