double erfc(double x);

float erfcf(float x);

long double erfcl(long double x);

 

DESCRIPTION

The erf() function returns the error function of x; defined as
erf(x) = 2/sqrt(pi)* integral from 0 to x of exp(-t*t) dt

The erfc() function returns the complementary error function of x, that is 1.0 - erf(x).
