Hi;

I do not think those are doable.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Yes, they are. Recall Normal probability distribution, please.

The integral of the Normal distribution yields the error function. The error function is not an elementary function. In other words the integral does not have a closed form.

Yes, they are.

I do not think so and neither does mathematica or maple. I am willing to look at your answer. Please provide your answer.

Doesn't that have two parameters not one? That is why I asked.

That is usually given a number, example Normsdist(2). I have no idea what it means when a function is put in there.
