Compute median or quantiles of a vector x.

The quantile qp can be defined as the probability p such that an element of x is lower than qp. The value p must be in the range 0 to 1. The special quantile q0.5 is also called median.


Usage 1
median(xvector {, pscalar })
x
data vector
p
the propability; 0 < p < 1 (default=0.5)
Result 1
Returns the p-quantile (scalar) of x.

Usage 2
median(xvector , pvector })
x
data vector
p
vector with propability values
Result 1
Returns a vector containing the quantiles for all probabilities p[i].
