TransformedDistribution

TransformedDistribution[expr,xdist]
represents the transformed distribution of expr where the random variable x follows the distribution dist.

TransformedDistribution[expr,{x1,x2,}dist]
represents the transformed distribution of expr where {x1,x2,} follows the multivariate distribution dist.

TransformedDistribution[expr,xproc]
represents the transformed distribution where expr contains expressions of the form x[t], referring the value at time t from the random process proc.

TransformedDistribution[expr,{x1dist1,x2dist2 ,}]
represents a transformed distribution where x1, x2, are independent and follow the distributions dist1, dist2, .
