z-distribution/b>
(Math | Distributions | z-Distribution)

z-distribution
The z- is a N(0, 1) distribution, given by the equation:

f(z) = 1/sqrt(2PI) e(-z^2/2)
The area within an interval (a,b) = normalcdf(a,b) = integral(a to b) e-z^2/2 dz (It is not integrable algebraically.)

The Taylor expansion of the above assists in speeding up the calculation:
normalcdf(-inf, z) = 1/2 + 1/sqrt(2PI) sum (k=0..inf) [ ( (-1)^k x^(2k+1) ) / ( (2k+1) 2^k k! ) ]

Standard Normal Probabilities:
(The table is based on the area P under the standard normal probability curve, below the respective z-statistic.)
