Hi,

I have a rather strange question: I am looking for a symmetric
unimodal
density with support on the whole real line with tails that die off not
slower
than a standard normal and an explicit expression for the inverse of the

cumulative distribution function. Something like the double exponential
would
do, only its tails are to heavy.

Wolfgang
