Description

The Student t distribution is a real valued distribution with one parameter n, the number of degrees of freedom.

It has .

student_t_distribution public construct/copy/destruct

  1. explicit student_t_distribution(RealType n = 1.0);

    Constructs an student_t_distribution with "n" degrees of freedom.

    Requires: n > 0

  2. explicit student_t_distribution(const param_type & param);

    Constructs an student_t_distribution from its parameters.

student_t_distribution public member functions

  1. template<typename URNG> RealType operator()(URNG & urng);

    Returns a random variate distributed according to the Student t distribution.

  2. template<typename URNG> 
      RealType operator()(URNG & urng, const param_type & param) const;

    Returns a random variate distributed accordint to the Student t distribution with parameters specified by param.

  3. RealType n() const;

    Returns the number of degrees of freedom.

  4. RealType min() const;

    Returns the smallest value that the distribution can produce.

  5. RealType max() const;

    Returns the largest value that the distribution can produce.

  6. param_type param() const;

    Returns the parameters of the distribution.

  7. void param(const param_type & param);

    Sets the parameters of the distribution.

  8. void reset();

    Effects: Subsequent uses of the distribution do not depend on values produced by any engine prior to invoking reset.

student_t_distribution friend functions

  1. template<typename CharT, typename Traits> 
      friend std::basic_ostream< CharT, Traits > & 
      operator<<(std::basic_ostream< CharT, Traits > & os, 
                 const student_t_distribution & td);

    Writes a student_t_distribution to a std::ostream.

  2. template<typename CharT, typename Traits> 
      friend std::basic_istream< CharT, Traits > & 
      operator>>(std::basic_istream< CharT, Traits > & is, 
                 const student_t_distribution & td);

    Reads a student_t_distribution from a std::istream.

  3. friend bool operator==(const student_t_distribution & lhs, 
                           const student_t_distribution & rhs);

    Returns true if the two instances of student_t_distribution will return identical sequences of values given equal generators.

  4. friend bool operator!=(const student_t_distribution & lhs, 
                           const student_t_distribution & rhs);

    Returns true if the two instances of student_t_distribution will return different sequences of values given equal generators.
