# trnd

Student's t random numbers

## Syntax

```r = trnd(nu) r = trnd(nu,m,n,...) r = trnd(nu,[m,n,...]) ```

## Description

`r = trnd(nu)` generates random numbers from Student's t distribution with `nu` degrees of freedom. `nu` can be a vector, a matrix, or a multidimensional array. The size of `r` is equal to the size of `nu`.

`r = trnd(nu,m,n,...)` or `r = trnd(nu,[m,n,...])` generates an `m`-by-`n`-by-... array. The `nu` parameter can be a scalar or an array of the same size as `r`.

## Examples

collapse all

```r1 = trnd(ones(1,6)) ```
```r1 = 0.2108 7.8450 -11.0511 0.4134 4.3293 -0.8323 ```
```r2 = trnd(1:6,[1 6]) ```
```r2 = 8.9290 -0.1908 0.3496 -0.7658 1.3234 -1.2808 ```
```r3 = trnd(3,2,6) ```
```r3 = 1.3157 0.7010 0.1591 -1.3840 4.1354 0.2442 0.9789 -2.4700 -1.8884 -0.0116 -0.9496 -0.2340 ```
