The skew-Cauchy distribution can be thought as a skew-t with tail-weight
parameter nu=1
. In this case, closed-form expressions of the
distribution function and the quantile function have been obtained by
Behboodian et al. (2006).
The key facts are summarized in Complement 4.2 of Azzalini and Capitanio (2014).
A multivariate version of the distribution exists.
