## Function Error-Function-Complement

(

**error-function-complement** < x > )

This function computes the complement of the error function, ` `

erfc(x),''

defined as 1-erf(x). See the documentation for `error-function' for a more

complete definition and description. Essentially, this function on z/sqrt2

returns the two-tailed significance of z in a standard Gaussian distribution.

This function implements the function that Numerical Recipes in C calls erfcc,

see section 6.3; that is, it's the one using the Chebyshev approximation, since

that is the one they call from their statistical functions. It is quick to

compute and has fractional error everywhere less than 1.2x10^{ -7} .
