The log likelihood of a Cauchy density with data, x, location and scale parameters.

likcauchy(x, location = 0, scale = 1, log = TRUE)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

location

location and scale parameters.

scale

location and scale parameters.

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

Value

A numeric scalar for the log likelihood of the Cauchy density given the data where location and scale can be held constant or if vector were given vector will be returned.

Details

The log likelihood is the log of a function of parameters given the data.

Examples

likcauchy(x = rcauchy(n = 2))
