This category contains results about the Cauchy distribution.


Let $X$ be a continuous random variable on a probability space $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.

Let $\Img X = \R$.


$X$ is said to have a Cauchy distribution if it has probability density function:

$\map {f_X} x = \dfrac 1 {\pi \gamma \paren {1 + \paren {\frac {x - x_0} \gamma}^2} }$

for some $\gamma > 0$.


This is written:

$X \sim \Cauchy {x_0} \gamma$
