## Univariate extended skew-t distribution

### Description

Density function, distribution function for the univariate extended skew-t (EST) distribution.

### Usage

dest(x, location=0, scale=1, shape=0, extended=0, df=Inf)
pest(x, location=0, scale=1, shape=0, extended=0, df=Inf)


### Arguments

 x quantile. location location parameter. 0 is the default. scale scale parameter; must be positive. 1 is the default. shape skewness parameter. 0 is the default. extended extension parameter. 0 is the default. df a single positive value representing the degrees of freedom; it can be non-integer. Default value is nu=Inf which corresponds to the skew-normal distribution.

### Value

density (dest), probability (pest) from the extended skew-t distribution with given location, scale, shape, extended and df parameters or from the skew-t if extended=0. If shape=0 and extended=0 then the t distribution is recovered.
