Detailed Description

One-factor Student t - Gaussian Copula.

The copula model [ Y_i = a_iM+sqrt{1-a_i^2}Z_i ] is specified here by setting the probability density functions for $ Z_i $ ( $ D_Z $) to a Gaussian and for $ M $ ( $ D_M $) to a Student t-distribution with $ N_m $ degrees of freedom.

The variance of the Student t-distribution with $ 0 $ degrees of freedom is $ 0 / (0 - 2) $. Since the copula approach requires zero mean and unit variance distributions, $ M $ is scaled by $ sqrt{(N_m - 2) / N_m}. $

Member Function Documentation

Real density (Real m) const [virtual]

Density function of M. Derived classes must override this method and ensure zero mean and unit variance.

Implements OneFactorCopula.

Real cumulativeZ (Real z) const [virtual]

Cumulative distribution of Z. Derived classes must override this method and ensure zero mean and unit variance.

Implements OneFactorCopula.
