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 and scale parameters. location and scale parameters. 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.
