Topics

t Location-Scale Distribution

The t location-scale distribution is useful for modeling data distributions with heavier tails (more prone to outliers) than the normal distribution.

Represent Cauchy Distribution Using t Location-Scale

This example shows how to use the t location-scale probability distribution object to work with a Cauchy distribution with nonstandard parameter values.
