cupy.random.standard_cauchy(size=None, dtype=<class 'float'>)[source]#

Standard cauchy distribution.

Returns an array of samples drawn from the standard cauchy distribution. Its probability density function is defined as

$f(x) = \frac{1}{\pi(1+x^2)}.$
Parameters
• size (int or tuple of ints) – The shape of the array. If None, a zero-dimensional array is generated.

• dtype – Data type specifier. Only numpy.float32 and numpy.float64 types are allowed.

Returns

Samples drawn from the standard cauchy distribution.

Return type

cupy.ndarray
