Tools for Multivariate Cauchy Distributions


This package provides tools for multivariate Cauchy distributions (MCD):

  • Calculation of distances/divergences between MCD:

    • Kullback-Leibler divergence: kldcauchy

  • Tools for MCD:

    • Probability density: dmcd

    • Simulation from a MCD: rmcd

    • Plot of the density of a MCD with 2 variables: plotmcd, contourmcd
