Copulas, Advanced Statistics

Invariant transformations to combine marginal probability functions to form multivariate distributions motivated by the need to enlarge the class of multivariate distributions beyond the multivariate normal distribution and its related functions such as the multi- variate Student's t-distribution and the Wishart distribution. An example is Frank's family of bivariate distributions. (The word 'copula' comes from Latin and means to connect or join.) Quintessentially copulas are measures of the dependent structure of the marginal distributions and they have been used to model correlated risks, joint default probabilities in credit portfolios and groups of individuals that are exposed to similar economic and physical environments. Also used in frailty models for surveying.
