I Inverse of Maxwell-Boltzmann Distribution and Planck's Law?

  1. Oct 8, 2016 #1
    I'm looking for the inverse functions of the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution and Planck's Law.

    Planck's Law in terms of the wavelength.

    Any of you know of any literature on this topic?

    ... second equation down gives Planck's law in terms of the wavelength.

    Do you mean to answer questions like: "given the spectral irradience, what is the wavelength"?
