On a Generalization of Bivariate Cauchy Distribution

On a Generalization of Bivariate Cauchy Distribution This paper addresses a generalization of the bivariate Cauchy distribution discussed by Fang et al. (1990), derived from a trivariate normal distribution with a general correlation matrix. We obtain explicit expressions for the joint distribution function and joint density function, and show that they reduce in a special case to the corresponding expressions of Fang et al. (1990). Finally, we show that this generalized distribution is useful in determining the orthant probability of a bivariate skew-normal distribution of Azzalini and Dalla Valle (1996). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods Taylor & Francis

On a Generalization of Bivariate Cauchy Distribution

Abstract

This paper addresses a generalization of the bivariate Cauchy distribution discussed by Fang et al. (1990), derived from a trivariate normal distribution with a general correlation matrix. We obtain explicit expressions for the joint distribution function and joint density function, and show that they reduce in a special case to the corresponding expressions of Fang et al. (1990). Finally, we show that this generalized distribution is useful in determining the orthant probability of a bivariate skew-normal distribution of Azzalini and Dalla Valle (1996).
