We introduce a new class of multivariate elliptically symmetric distributions including elliptically symmetric logistic distributions and Kotz type distributions. We investigate the various probabilistic properties including marginal distributions, conditional distributions, linear transformations, characteristic functions and dependence measure in the perspective of the inconsistency property. In addition, we provide a real data example to show that the new distributions have reasonable…

It is shown that bivariate elliptical distributions possess the so-called tail dependence property if the tail of their generating random variable is regularly varying, and a necessary condition for tail dependence is given which is somewhat weaker than regular variation of the latter tail.
Local dependence functions for the elliptically symmetric distributions
Bairamov et al. (2000) introduced a measure of local dependence which is a localized version of the Galton correlation coefficient. In this paper we: 1) provide a motivation for this new measure; 2)

Generalized elliptical distributions
ABSTRACT A family of distributions generated by an operator acting on generalized normal density is introduced. This family contains as particular cases many known distributions, including the
Consistency Property of Elliptic Probability Density Functions
Several conditions are established under which a family of elliptical probability density functions possesses a preferable consistency property. The consistency property ensures that any marginal
