# MarginalDistribution

MarginalDistribution[dist, k]
represents a univariate marginal distribution of the k coordinate from the multivariate distribution dist.

MarginalDistribution[dist, {k1, k2, ...}]
represents a multivariate marginal distribution of the coordinates.

## DetailsDetails

• The distribution dist can be either a discrete or continuous multivariate distribution.
• For a discrete multivariate distribution dist with PDF , the PDF of MarginalDistribution[dist, {k1, ..., km}] is given by where .
• For a continuous multivariate distribution dist with PDF , the PDF of MarginalDistribution[dist, {k1, ..., km}] is given by where .
• MarginalDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate, etc.
