In computing the incomplete beta function, numerical instability is encountered as the parameters increase. To provide a given number of significant digits, a multiple precision (MP) package for the computation of the incomplete beta function has been developed. Since MP arithmetic is time consuming, finding an efficient algorithm is important. To complement the MP package, a new algorithm, for computation of the inverse incomplete beta function, with convergence of order 4 has been developed.
