The normal probability function is usually depicted:
Y = { 1/[ σ * sqrt(2π) ] } * e(x  μ)2/2σ2
Is there an algebraic expression for the distribution function (algebraic antiderivative) for the above equation or does one have to always have a numeric (use of tables) solution?

there is no cumulative distribution function expressible in terms of elementary functions, unfortunately. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_function
