Remarks

The Inverse Cumulative Distribution Function (ICDF) specifies, for a given probability, the value which the random variable will be at, or below, with that probability.

The Normal distribution's ICDF is defined in terms of the standard normal inverse cumulative distribution function I as ICDF(p) = μ + σ * I(p).
