# Paramter of a multivariate t distribution

### Description

The class of the parameter of MVt distributions.

### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("MVtParameter", ...)`

.

### Slots

`loc`

:numeric; center / location of the distribution.

`scale`

:matrix; the scale matrix; the number of rows of this matrix must be the same as the length of

`location`

.`df`

:integer; the degrees of freedom.

`ncp`

:positive real; the non-centrality parameter.

`name`

:default name is “parameter of a Elliptical distribution”.

### Extends

Class `"Parameter"`

, directly.

Class `"OptionalParameter"`

, by class `"Parameter"`

.

### Methods

- mean
`signature(object = "MVnormParameter")`

: access method for slot`location`

.- sigma
`signature(x = "MVnormParameter")`

: utility function; returns`S%*%t(S)`

for`S=scale(x)`

.- ncp
`signature(object = "MVnormParameter")`

: access method for slot`ncp`

.- df
`signature(x = "MVnormParameter")`

: access method for slot`df`
