Re: st: RE: [Question on Cauchy distribution]
Someone pointed out a program yesterday called PQRS. You can use it
to calculate probabilities and create a small graph of the
probability distribution. Very useful for teaching, I'd been looking
for something like this. It's available at
I just downloaded it myself, it says that a Cauchy distribution is
indeed a special case of the t-distribution.
Hope this helps,
