rvcauchy: Generate Random Variables from a Cauchy Sampling Model

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References

Description

Random vector generation for the Cauchy distribution.

Usage

1
rvcauchy(n = 1, location = 0, scale = 1)

Arguments

n

integer: number of variables to generate

location

location parameter (may be random)

scale

scale parameter (may be random)

Details

For details on the Cauchy distribution, see Cauchy. See also rvt; Cauchy is a special case of the t-distribution with 1 degree of freedom, and therefore rvcauchy(n,location,scale) is equivalent to rvt(n, mu, scale, df=1).

Value

A random vector (rv object) of length n.
