# Probability Density Function

Student's t distribution probability density function (PDF).

The probability density function (PDF) for a t distribution random variable is where v > 0 is the degrees of freedom.

## Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-t-pdf


## Usage

var pdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-t-pdf' );


#### pdf( x, v )

Evaluates the probability density function (PDF) for a Student's t distribution with degrees of freedom v.

var y = pdf( 0.3, 4.0 );
// returns ~0.355

y = pdf( 2.0, 0.7 );
// returns ~0.058

y = pdf( -1.0, 0.5 );
// returns ~0.118


If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

var y = pdf( NaN, 1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = pdf( 0.0, NaN );
// returns NaN


If provided v <= 0, the function returns NaN.

var y = pdf( 2.0, -1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = pdf( 2.0, 0.0 );
// returns NaN


#### pdf.factory( v )

Returns a function for evaluating the PDF of a Student's t distribution with degrees of freedom v.

var mypdf = pdf.factory( 1.0 );
var y = mypdf( 3.0 );
// returns ~0.032

y = mypdf( 1.0 );
// returns ~0.159


## Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var pdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-t-pdf' );

var v;
var x;
var y;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
x = (randu() * 6.0) - 3.0;
v = randu() * 10.0;
y = pdf( x, v );
console.log( 'x: %d, v: %d, f(x;v): %d', x, v, y );
}


## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
