# Fast computation of the multivariate normal density.

### Description

Fast computation of the multivariate normal density.

### Usage

1 |

### Arguments

`X` |
matrix n by d where each row is a d dimensional random vector. Alternatively |

`mu` |
vector of length d, representing the mean of the distribution. |

`sigma` |
covariance matrix (d x d). Alternatively it can be the cholesky decomposition of the covariance. In that case isChol should be set to TRUE. |

`log` |
boolean set to true the logarithm of the pdf is required. |

`ncores` |
Number of cores used. The parallelization will take place only if OpenMP is supported. |

`isChol` |
boolean set to true is |

### Value

A vector of length n where the i-the entry contains the pdf of the i-th random vector.
