PURPOSE

% Compute the cumulative distribution function of the multivariate

SYNOPSIS

function [p, err] = mvncdf (varargin)

DESCRIPTION

```% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {@var{p} =} mvncdf (@var{x}, @var{mu}, @var{sigma})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {} mvncdf (@var{a}, @var{x}, @var{mu}, @var{sigma})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{p}, @var{err}] =} mvncdf (@dots{})
% Compute the cumulative distribution function of the multivariate
% normal distribution.
%
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{x} is the upper limit for integration where each row corresponds
% to an observation.
%
% @item
% @var{mu} is the mean.
%
% @item
% @var{sigma} is the correlation matrix.
%
% @item
% @var{a} is the lower limit for integration where each row corresponds
% to an observation. @var{a} must have the same size as @var{x}.
% @end itemize
%
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{p} is the cumulative distribution at each row of @var{x} and
% @var{a}.
%
% @item
% @var{err} is the estimated error.
% @end itemize

% @example
% @group
% x = [1 2];

% p = mvncdf (x, mu, sigma)
% @end group

% @group
% a = [-inf 0];
