Just a note

Notice that, because x is in effect a quantile of population X, this distribution function is sometimes described as a quantile distribution function.

Also, following standard mathematical notation, the inverse function is indicated using the same symbol, followed by a -1 superscript. As with the cumulative distribution function, the inverse function (N-1) requires three values to calculate a quantile corresponding to P: P, μ and σ - whereas the 'standard' normal distribution function (Φ-1) only needs one value, P.
