Re: st: [Question on Cauchy distribution]
Many informative sites come up on www.google.com for the phrase "cauchy
The Cauchy Distribution. ... The Cauchy distribution is symmetric around
zero, and bell-shaped, but it has considerably heavier tails than the
normal distribution. ...
[couldn't get to site]
"The standard Cauchy distribution is a probability distribution with
probability density function
f(x) = 1 / (p (1+x2)).
It is often cited as an example of a distribution which has no mean,
variance or higher moments defined, although its mode and median are well
defined and both zero. "
