Multivariate inverse Gaussian and skew-normal densities


  • Joe, Harry
  • Seshadri, Vanamamalai
  • Arnold, Barry C.


Based on inverse Gaussian random variables being transformations of skew-normal random variables, multivariate inverse Gaussian densities are obtained from appropriate multivariate skew-normal distributions. The new skew-normal distributions have some closure properties not satisfied by other multivariate skew-normal distributions.
