Compute the inverse error function of a real x, defined by $\operatorname{erf}(\operatorname{erfinv}(x)) = x$.


  1. Compute the inverse error function:

    julia> erfinv(0.5)

    This example computes the inverse error function of 0.5 using the erfinv function.

  2. Inverse error function of a negative value:

    julia> erfinv(-0.2)

    It calculates the inverse error function of -0.2.

  3. Compute the inverse error function of an array:
    julia> x = [-0.5, 0.3, 0.8];
    julia> erfinv.(x)
    3-element Array{Float64,1}:

    This example uses broadcasting to compute the inverse error function for each element in the array x.

Common mistake example:

julia> erfinv("abc")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching erfinv(::String)

In this example, the input to erfinv is not a valid argument. The erfinv function expects a real number as input, not a string. Make sure to provide a valid input to the erfinv function for correct results.
