29.6.8.5.4 Class template cauchy_­distribution [rand.dist.norm.cauchy]

A cauchy_­distribution random number distribution produces random numbers x distributed according to the probability density function

template<class RealType = double>
  class cauchy_distribution {
  public:
    // types
    using result_type = RealType;
    using param_type  = unspecified;

    // constructor and reset functions
    explicit cauchy_distribution(RealType a = 0.0, RealType b = 1.0);
    explicit cauchy_distribution(const param_type& parm);
    void reset();

    // generating functions
    template<class URBG>
      result_type operator()(URBG& g);
    template<class URBG>
      result_type operator()(URBG& g, const param_type& parm);

    // property functions
    RealType a() const;
    RealType b() const;
    param_type param() const;
    void param(const param_type& parm);
    result_type min() const;
    result_type max() const;
  };

explicit cauchy_distribution(RealType a = 0.0, RealType b = 1.0);

Requires: .

Effects: Constructs a cauchy_­distribution object; a and b correspond to the respective parameters of the distribution.

RealType a() const;

Returns: The value of the a parameter with which the object was constructed.

RealType b() const;

Returns: The value of the b parameter with which the object was constructed.
