Python code for computing distribution parameters from percentiles

A few days ago I wrote a post on finding parameters so that a probability distribution satisfies two percentile conditions. Since then I’ve written Python code to carry out the calculations described in that article and the accompanying technical report.

The article is Finding probability distribution parameters from percentiles posted on CodeProject. The article comes with Python source code and some commentary. The article shows how SciPy and the functools module make it possible for the code to be very succinct.
