Bivariate Continuous Distributions
This chapter lists a small number of bivariate distributions whose parameters can easily be estimated by IRLS. A handful of a special type of bivariate distribution, called copulas, are also implemented. Some special consideration is given to the bivariate normal distribution and Plackett’s bivariate distribution.
