%N Decimal expansion of the quantile z_0.95 of the standard normal distribution.

%C z_p is the number z such that Phi(z) = p, where Phi(x) = Integral_{t=-oo..x} (1/sqrt(2*Pi))*exp(-t^2/2)*dt is the cumulative distribution function of the standard normal distribution. This sequence gives z_0.95 (also called the 95th percentile).

%C This number can also be denoted as probit(0.95), where probit(p) is the inverse function of Phi(x). See the Wikipedia link below.

%e If X ~ N(0,1), then P(X<=1.6448536269...) = 0.95, P(X<=-1.6448536269...) = 0.05.
