26.6.8 Random number distribution class templates [rand.dist] Normal distributions [rand.dist.norm] Class template student_­t_­distribution [rand.dist.norm.t]

A student_­t_­distribution random number distribution produces random numbers x distributed according to the probability density function
template<class RealType = double>
  class student_t_distribution {
    // types
    using result_type = RealType;
    using param_type  = unspecified;

    // constructor and reset functions
    student_t_distribution() : student_t_distribution(1.0) {}
    explicit student_t_distribution(RealType n);
    explicit student_t_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 n() const;
    param_type param() const;
    void param(const param_type& parm);
    result_type min() const;
    result_type max() const;
explicit student_t_distribution(RealType n);
Preconditions: .
Remarks: n corresponds to the parameter of the distribution.
RealType n() const;
Returns: The value of the n parameter with which the object was constructed.
