Fast Multivariate Normal and Student's t Methods

Provides computationally efficient tools related to the multivariate normal and Student's t distributions. The main functionalities are: simulating multivariate random vectors, evaluating multivariate normal or Student's t densities and Mahalanobis distances. These tools are very efficient thanks to the use of C++ code and of the OpenMP API.

Fast methods for multivariate normal distributions. For details type vignette("mvnfast").
