¶ Bases:

The Student’s T uncertainty distribution probability density function is a function of \(\nu\), the degrees of freedom:
\[f(x; \nu) = \frac{\Gamma(\frac{\nu+1}{2})} {\sqrt{\nu\pi},\Gamma(\frac{\nu}{2})} \left(1+\frac{x^2}{\nu} \right)^{\frac{\nu+1}{2}}\]A nonstandardized distribution, with a location and scale parameter, is also possible, through the transformation:
\[X = \mu + \sigma f\]In our implementation, the location parameter \(\mu\) is
location
, the scale parameter \(\sigma\) isscale
, and \(\nu\) (the degrees of freedom) isshape
.
