The F distribution with `df1 =`

*n1*, by default `= 1`

,
and `df2 =`

*n2*, by default `= 1`

, degrees of freedom has density

*d(x) = Gamma((n1 + n2)/2) / (Gamma(n1/2) Gamma(n2/2))
(n1/n2)^(n1/2) x^(n1/2 - 1)
(1 + (n1/n2) x)^-(n1 + n2)/2*

for *x > 0*.

C.f. `rf`

Objects can be created by calls of the form `Fd(df1, df2)`

.

- initialize
`signature(.Object = "Fd")`

: initialize method- df1
`signature(object = "Fd")`

: returns the slot`df1`

of the parameter of the distribution- df1<-
`signature(object = "Fd")`

: modifies the slot`df1`

of the parameter of the distribution- df2
`signature(object = "Fd")`

: returns the slot`df2`

of the parameter of the distribution- df2<-
`signature(object = "Fd")`

: modifies the slot`df2`

of the parameter of the distribution

An ad hoc method is provided for slot

`d`

if`ncp!=0`

.For R Version

`<2.3.0`

ad hoc methods are provided for slots`q`

,`r`

if`ncp!=0`

; for R Version`>=2.3.0`

the methods from package stats are used.

It is the distribution of the ratio of the mean squares of n1 and n2 independent standard normals, and hence of the
ratio of two independent chi-squared variates each divided by its degrees of freedom. Since the ratio of a normal and the
root mean-square of m independent normals has a Student's *t_m* distribution, the square of a *t_m* variate has a F
distribution on 1 and m degrees of freedom.

The non-central F distribution is again the ratio of mean squares of independent normals of unit variance, but those in the numerator are allowed to have non-zero means and ncp is the sum of squares of the means.
