A function that can be used in Formulas.

Syntax and semantics

erfc (x)
compute the complement of the error function


erfc (x) = 1 − erf (x)

Why isn’t this function superfluous?

Because of floating-point rounding errors: although one might think that erf ic sufficient, erfc is a separate function because erf (x) can be close to 1.
