In probability and statistics, the **quantile function** outputs the value of a random variable such that its probability is less than or equal to an input probability value. Intuitively, the quantile function associates with a range at and below a probability input the likelihood that a random variable is realized in that range for some probability distribution. It is also called the **percentile function** (after the percentile), **percent-point function** or **inverse cumulative distribution function** (after the cumulative distribution function).
