it sould be a density f(x) such that:

INTG(-inft, +inft)1/x * f(x) dx =
= 1/[INTG (-inft, +inft) f(x) dx

which is impossible.

The Richard Ulrich´s that it will be a Cauchy
distribution is absolutely amazing. Ask him at
what he based this assumption . . .
The only thing that is true is that Cuachy is the ratio
between two normal standard. Note else.
