StudentTDistribution

StudentTDistribution[]
represents a Student t distribution with degrees of freedom.
  • The probability density for value x in a Student t distribution with degrees of freedom is proportional to (nu/(nu+x^2))^((1+nu)/2). »
  • For integer , the Student t distribution gives the distribution of the deviation from the true mean of the observed mean for a sample of values from a normal distribution, normalized by standard deviation of the sample.
