The multivariate-t distribution and the Simes inequality
Sarkar (1998) showed that certain positively dependent (MTP2) random variables satisfy the Simes inequality. The multivariate-t distribution does not satisfy this (MTP2) property, so other means are necessary. A corollary was given in Sarkar (1998) to handle this distribution, but there is an error. In this paper a direct proof is given to show the multivariate-t does satisfy the Simes inequality.
