dt2d(x, y, rho = 0, nu = 4)
pt2d(x, y, rho = 0, nu = 4)
rt2d(n, rho = 0, nu = 4)

Arguments

n

the number of random deviates to be generated, an integer value.

nu

the number of degrees of freedom, a numeric value ranging between two and infinity, by default four.

rho

the correlation parameter, a numeric value ranging between minus one and one, by default zero.

x, y

two numeric vectors defining the x and y coordinates.

Value

pt2d
returns a two column matrix of probabilities for the bivariate Student-t distribution function.

dt2d
returns a two column matrix of densities for the bivariate Student-t distribution function.

rt2d
returns a two column matrix of random deviates generated from the bivariate Student-t distribution function.
