On fundamental skew distributions

By Reinaldo B. Arellano-Valle and Marc G. Genton

Abstract

A new class of multivariate skew-normal distributions, fundamental skew-normal distributions and their canonical version, is developed. It contains the product of independent univariate skew-normal distributions as a special case. Stochastic representations and other main properties of the associated distribution theory of linear and quadratic forms are considered. A unified procedure for extending this class to other families of skew distributions such as the fundamental skew-symmetric, fundamental skew-elliptical, and fundamental skew-spherical class of distributions is also discussed.Marginal and conditional distributions Moment generating function Normal, spherical and elliptical distributions Quadratic forms Stochastic representation
