Usage

var erfcx = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-erfcx' );

erfcx( x )

Evaluates the scaled complementary error function.

var y = erfcx( 0.0 );
// returns 1.0

y = erfcx( 1.0 );
// returns ~0.4276

y = erfcx( -1.0 );
// returns ~5.01

y = erfcx( 50.0 );
// returns ~0.011

y = erfcx( -50.0 );
// returns +Infinity

If provided NaN, the function returns NaN.

var y = erfcx( NaN );
// returns NaN

Examples

var linspace = require( '@stdlib/array-base-linspace' );
var erfcx = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-erfcx' );

var x = linspace( -30.0, 30.0, 100 );

var i;
for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
    console.log( 'x: %d, erfcx(x): %d', x[ i ], erfcx( x[ i ] ) );
}
