  we need more information.  This is a stats question more than an R
question, and there isn't enough context here to know either (1) what
arctangent distribution you're talking about (it may be the Cauchy/
t-distribution with 1 df, or it may be something else) or (2) why
you want to transform the distribution, and whether it's a sensible
thing to do in the first place ... (see what the posting guide has
to say about statistical questions ...)
