• ### Constructor Detail

• #### Cauchy

`public Cauchy()`
Default constructor. The location parameter is set to zero and the scale parameter is set to one.
• #### Cauchy

`public Cauchy(double m,              double s)`
Create a distribution with the given location and scale parameters.
Parameters:
`m` - the location parameter.
`s` - the scale parameter.
• ### Method Detail

• #### cumulativeProbability

`public double cumulativeProbability(double x)`
The CDF for this distribution. This method returns P(X < x).
Specified by:
`cumulativeProbability` in class `ContinuousDistribution`
Parameters:
`x` - the value at which the CDF is evaluated.
Returns:
CDF for this distribution.
• #### getMedian

`public double getMedian()`
Access the location parameter.
Returns:
the location parameter.
• #### getScale

`public double getScale()`
Access the scale parameter.
Returns:
the scale parameter.
• #### inverseCumulativeProbability

`public double inverseCumulativeProbability(double p)`
The inverse CDF for this distribution. This method returns x such that, P(X < x) = p.
Specified by:
`inverseCumulativeProbability` in class `ContinuousDistribution`
Parameters:
`p` - the cumulative probability.
Returns:
x
• #### setMedian

`public void setMedian(double m)`
Modify the location parameter.
Parameters:
`m` - The new location parameter value.
• #### setScale

`public void setScale(double s)`
Modify the scale parameter.
Parameters:
`s` - The new scale parameter value.
