A new family of nonexchangeable copulas for positive dependence


  • Cerqueti, Roy


  • Lupi, Claudio



This note contributes to the development of the theory of stochastic dependence by employing the general concept of copula. In particular, it deals with the construction of a new family of non-exchangeable copulas characterizing the multivariate total positivity of order 2 (MTP2) dependence.
