## Detailed Description

Maddock's Inverse cumulative normal distribution class.

Given x between zero and one as the integral value of a gaussian normal distribution this class provides the value y such that formula here ...

From the boost documentation: These functions use a rational approximation devised by John Maddock to calculate an initial approximation to the result that is accurate to ~10^-19, then only if that has insufficient accuracy compared to the epsilon for type double, do we clean up the result using Halley iteration.
