Multivariate Random Variables

  • V.G. Kulkarni
Part of the Springer Text in Statistics book series (STS)


In Chapter 2 we defined a random variable as a numerical function from the sample space into the real line. We introduced the concepts of cdf, pdf, and pmf as alternate means of describing a random variable. It is sometimes necessary to define more than one random variable on a probability space to study different aspects of a random phenomenon.
