On the distribution of the sum of dependent standard normally distributed random variables using copulas

  title={On the distribution of the sum of dependent standard normally distributed random variables using copulas},
  author={Walter Schneider},
The distribution function of the sum Z of two standard normally distributed random variables X and Y is computed with the concept of copulas to model the dependency between X and Y . By using implicit copulas such as the Gaussor t-copula as well as Archimedean Copulas such as the Clayton-, Gumbelor Frank-copula, a wide variety of different dependencies can be covered. For each of these copulas an analytical closed form expression for the corresponding joint probability density function fX,Y is… Expand

Determining Distribution for the Product of Random Variables by Using Copulas
Determining distributions of the functions of random variables is one of the most important problems in statistics and applied mathematics because distributions of functions have wide range ofExpand
On computing the distribution function of the sum of independent random variables
Abstract We present an efficient approach to the determination of the convolution of random variables when their probability density functions are given as continuous functions over finite support.Expand
An Introduction to Copulas
This book is aimed at graduate students in statistics or mathematics, and practicing statisticians, and requires proficiency in advanced calculus, and can serve as a very good reference on the exciting topic of wavelets. Expand
A copula-based approach to account for dependence in stress-strength models
The focus of stress-strength models is on the evaluation of the probability R = P(Y < X) that stress Y experienced by a component does not exceed strength X required to overcome it. In reliabilityExpand
A stress–strength model with dependent variables to measure household financial fragility
It is pointed out that neglecting the existing dependence in fact overestimates the actual household fragility, and it is shown that the proposed method improves the estimation of household financial fragility. Expand
On the distribution of the sum of independent uniform random variables
Motivated by an application in change point analysis, we derive a closed form for the density function of the sum of n independent, non-identically distributed, uniform random variables.
An Inequality for the Sum of Independent Bounded Random Variables
We give a simple inequality for the sum of independent, bounded random variables. This inequality improves on the celebrated result of Hoeffding in a special case. It is optimal in the limit whereExpand
