The log likelihood of a Student's t density with data, x, df and ncp parameters.

likt(x, df, ncp, log = TRUE)

## Arguments

x vector of quantiles. degrees of freedom ($$> 0$$, maybe non-integer). df = Inf is allowed. non-centrality parameter $$\delta$$; currently except for rt(), only for abs(ncp) <= 37.62. If omitted, use the central t distribution. logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

## Value

A numeric scalar for the log likelihood of the Student's t density given the data where df and ncp 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

likt(x = rt(n = 2, df = 4),
df = 4)#> [1] -2.695652
