PURPOSE ^

% Compute the cumulative distribution function of the multivariate

SYNOPSIS ^

function [p, err] = mvtcdf (varargin)

DESCRIPTION ^

% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {@var{p} =} mvtcdf (@var{x}, @var{sigma}, @var{nu})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {} mvtcdf (@var{a}, @var{x}, @var{sigma}, @var{nu})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{p}, @var{err}] =} mvtcdf (@dots{})
% Compute the cumulative distribution function of the multivariate
% Student's t distribution.
%
% @subheading Arguments
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{x} is the upper limit for integration where each row corresponds
% to an observation.
%
% @item
% @var{sigma} is the correlation matrix.
%
% @item
% @var{nu} is the degrees of freedom.
%
% @item
% @var{a} is the lower limit for integration where each row corresponds
% to an observation. @var{a} must have the same size as @var{x}.
% @end itemize
%
% @subheading Return values
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{p} is the cumulative distribution at each row of @var{x} and
% @var{a}.
%
% @item
% @var{err} is the estimated error.
% @end itemize
%
% @subheading Examples
%
% @example
% @group
% x = [1 2];
% sigma = [1.0 0.5; 0.5 1.0];
% nu = 4;
% p = mvtcdf (x, sigma, nu)
% @end group
%
% @group
% a = [-inf 0];
% p = mvtcdf (a, x, sigma, nu)
% @end group
