Back to distributions. I took a crack at normal today and came up with the following options, I could use an asymptotic expansion, or a power series I found an interesting approximation by C Hastings, at least it was interesting until I tried it and it produced crap results. All and all I am in love with the handbook of mathematical functions, and things are going well. If anyone has had any luck with a fast precise algorithm pls. do share :)

In personal news (in case anyone cares) my bf just got back from a trip and bought me a stuffed penguin from FAO Schwarz it's kwel.

I am also going to NC for the Tech Circus it's nothing huge and technical but should be fun. Plus I will get to see some friends, mgalgoci, mark, timball etc.
