Compute Log of Multivariate Student-t Density

Description

lndMvst computes the log of a Multivariate Student-t Density.

Usage

lndMvst(x, nu, mu, rooti, NORMC)

Arguments

x

density ordinate

nu

d.f. parameter

mu

mu vector

rooti

inv of Cholesky root of Σ

NORMC

include normalizing constant (def: FALSE)

Details

z ~ MVst(mu, nu, Σ)

Value

Log density value

Warning
