A bivariate stable characterization and domains of attraction


  • Resnick, Sidney
  • Greenwood, Priscilla


Bivariate stable distributions are defined as those having a domain of attraction, where vectors are used for normalization. These distributions are identified and their domains of attraction are given in a number of equivalent forms. In one case, marginal convergence implies joint convergence. A bivariate optional stopping property is given. Applications to bivariate random walk are suggested.
