ProductDistribution

ProductDistribution[dist1,dist2,]
represents the joint distribution with independent component distributions dist1, dist2, .

DetailsDetails

  • The probability density for ProductDistribution[dist1,dist2,] is given by where is the PDF of dist1, is the PDF of dist2, etc.
  • The notation {disti,n} indicates that disti is repeated n times.
  • The distributions disti can be any combination of univariate, multivariate, continuous, or discrete distributions.
  • ProductDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate.
