Abstract:

An algorithm is given for evaluating the incomplete beta function ratio 1 sub x a,b and its complement 1-I sub x a,b. Two new procedures are used with classical results. A listing of a transportable Fortran subroutine using this algorithm is given. The subroutine is accurate to 14 significant digits when the precision is not restricted by inherent error.
