Student's t Distribution

The Student’s t distribution is a family of curves depending on a single parameter ν (the degrees of freedom).

Generate Cauchy Random Numbers Using Student's t

This example shows how to use the Student's t distribution to generate random numbers from a standard Cauchy distribution.
