Class "Cauchy"

The Cauchy distribution with location $l$, by default $=0$, and scale $s$ , by default $=1$,has density $$f(x) = \frac{1}{\pi s} \left( 1 + \left(\frac{x - l}{s}\right)^2 \right)^{-1}$$ for all $x$. C.f. rcauchy

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form Cauchy(location, scale). This object is a Cauchy distribution.
