Erf function in MATLAB

  1. Sep 23, 2009 #1
    Hi all,

    This question may be silly but I've come across with erf function while performing a symbolic integration of a complicated math expression. i guess it refers an error function that can be cumulated during the integration process but does it mean that I can ignore the terms affiliated with erf function. for instance

    = a*x*bla bla + erf(xxxxxxxxx)

    does it mean that i can ignore the second term at RHS?

    thank you very much in advance

    ps: in MATLAB by the way

    I really doubt it. Did you wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_function" [Broken]?

    Oh my bad. Thank you very much. I just thought it's a custom MATLAB function.
    Thank you Integral. :)
