## The Multivariate Student-t Distribution

### Description

Density function and random generation for the multivariate Student-t
distribution with location vector `mu`

, covariance matrix `Sigma`

,
and degrees of freedom `df`

.

### Usage

```
dmulti_student_t(x, df, mu, Sigma, log = FALSE, check = FALSE)
rmulti_student_t(n, df, mu, Sigma, check = FALSE)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
Vector or matrix of quantiles. If |

`df` |
Vector of degrees of freedom. |

`mu` |
Location vector with length equal to the number of dimensions. |

`Sigma` |
Covariance matrix. |

`log` |
Logical; If |

`check` |
Logical; Indicates whether several input checks
should be performed. Defaults to |

`n` |
Number of draws to sample from the distribution. |
