## Synopsis

```    function chiinv(
p   : float,
df  : float
)

```

## Arguments

p
The integral from 0 to X of the chi-square distribution. [0<p<1]
df
degrees of freedom of the chi-square distribution. (0, +infinity)

## Description

Calculates the upper integration of the non-central chi-square distribution. This gives the same answers as IMSL's chiin function.

## Example

```begin
p  = 0.99
df = 2.
x  = chiinv (p,df)
print ("p="+p+"   df="+df+"   x="+x)

df = 64.
x  = chiinv (p,df)
print ("p="+p+"   df="+df+"   x="+x)

end
```
The result is:
```(0)     p=0.99   df=2    x= 9.21034
(0)     p=0.99   df=64   x=93.2169
```
