This function implements pseudo-random number generation for a standard-*t* distribution with pdf

*f(x|ν)=\frac{Γ(\frac{ν+1}{2})}{Γ(\frac{ν}{2})√{νπ}}(1+\frac{x^2}{ν})^{-(ν+1)/2}*

for *-∞ < x < ∞* where *ν* is the degrees of freedom.

`dof` |
Degrees of freedom of the desired t distribution. |

A list of length five containing generated data, the theoretical mean, the empirical mean, the theoretical variance, and the empirical variance with names y, theo.mean, emp.mean, theo.var, and emp.var, respectively.
