# Java statistical functions

Hello everybody,

I'm currently going through the process of trying to convert a series of Excel VBA formula's into Java.

I'm having trouble locating a few of the statistical functions and I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for the following :

NORMINV - Returns the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution for the specified mean and standard deviation
NORMDIST - Returns the normal cumulative distribution for the specified mean and standard deviation
NORMSINV - Returns the inverse of the standard normal cumulative distribution

Cheers

ok.  I found the solution myself after some hunting.

The package I'm now using is JSci from :

http://jsci.sourceforge.net/

This is a GPL package that does all the above functions and more.
