Bivariate Normal
Hi,
If you have a bivariate normal distribution f(x,y), can you derive closed form solutions for the marginal distribution fx(x) and/or the conditional distribution fxy(x,y)?
I was able to do it if corr(x,y) = 0 but not sure if it is possible when corr(x,y) != 0
Thanks

If you have a bivariate normal, then the marginals are normal and the mean and variance of X, and Y too,
have to be the same as they were in the joint distribution.
The conditional is also normal and can be found in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiva...l_distribution
Look under ...Conditional distributions... they even give you the mean and variance of YX.
So for XY just switch your random variables.
