Developing a wide easy-to-generate class of bivariate copulas

By Navid Izady and Hashem Mahlooji


As of late, copulas have drawn great attention in stochastic simulation, financial engineering, and risk management. Their power lies under their ability of modeling dependent random variables. Using a known theorem in probability which proves that the fractional part of the sum of a uniform and an arbitrary independent continuous random variable follows a uniform distribution, we construct a wide class of bivariate copulas in which bivariate random vector generation can be performed easily. Some important members of this new class and their properties together with two invariant correlation measures and some insights in their application are presente
