The non-central t distribution is a generalization of
student's t distribution.
The non-central t distribution has two parameters. The first is the degrees of freedom,
commonly denoted by the Greek letter ν. The second is the non-centrality parameter, λ.
The probability density function is a complex expression involving sums
of hypergeometric functions.
The non-central t distribution is implemented by the
NonCentralStudentTDistribution class. It has one constructor
with the degrees of freedom as its only argument.
The following constructs a non-central student t distribution
with 8 degrees of freedom and non-centrality parameter 12:
var ncStudentT = new NonCentralStudentTDistribution(8, 12.0);
Dim ncStudentT = New NonCentralStudentTDistribution(8, 12)
No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
let ncStudentT = NonCentralStudentTDistribution(8.0, 12.0)
class has two specific properties.
returns the degrees of freedom of the distribution.
returns the non-centrality parameter.
