Description

Generates a scaled object of class "Td"; the scale (sd) is chosen such that STd(nu=3, sd=1) has variance 1 independently from the degrees of freedom nu. This object is of class "AffLinAbscontDistribution".

Usage

STd(mean = 0, sd = 1, nu = 5)

Arguments

mean

real number: location parameter of the STd distribution.

sd

positive real number: scale parameter of the STd distribution

nu

real number larger than 2: degree of freedom parameter of the STd distribution.
