Probability theory is a branch of mathematics concerned with analysis of random phenomena.
The central objects of probability theory are random variables, stochastic processes, and events: mathematical abstractions of non-deterministic events or measured quantities that may either be single occurrences or evolve over time in an apparently random fashion.
The theorem states that the average of many independent and identically distributed random variables tends towards a normal distribution irrespective of which distribution the original random variables follow.

  Multivariate random variable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A multivariate random variable or random vector is a vector X = (X
) whose components are scalar-valued random variables on the same probability space (Ω, P).
This measure is also known as the joint distribution of the random vector.

 Stochastic_process
A stochastic process is a random function, that is a random variable X defined on a probability space (Ω, Pr) with values in a space of functions F.
Stochastic processes may be defined in higher dimensions by attaching a multivariate random variable to each point in the index set, which is equivalent to using a multidimensional index set.
The particle is then viewed as being subject to a random force which, since the molecules are very small and very close together, is treated as being continuous and, since the particle is constrained to the surface of the liquid by surface tension, is at each point in time a vector parallel to the surface.

 Kurtosis, Leptokurtosis and Platykurtosis
Kurtosis is a parameter that describes the shape of a random variable’s probability density function (PDF).
A normal random variable has a kurtosis of 3 irrespective of its mean or standard deviation.
If a random variable’s kurtosis is greater than 3, it is said to be leptokurtic.

 Multivariate t Random Numbers
To generate an NxP matrix of t random numbers in Dataplot, you must specify a Px1 mean vector, a PxP variance-covariance matrix, and the desired degress of freedom (i.e., the shape parameter for the t distribution).
Dataplot first generates multivariate normal random numbers with a mean vector AMU and a variance-covariance matrix SIGMA using the RDMNOR routine.
As with univariate random numbers, the nultivariate normal random numbers are built on an underlying uniform random number generators.

 A Statistical Model of the Aberration Structure of Normal, Well-Corrected Eyes
A statistical model of the wavefront aberration function of the normal, well-corrected eye was constructed based on normative data from 200 eyes which show that, apart from spherical aberration, the higher-order aberrations of the human eye tend to be randomly distributed about a mean value of zero.
, which allows for variation in the axial and lateral location of the pupil, which in turn allows for variation in the various reference axes of the eye and the magnitude of off-axis astigmatism.
The statistical structure of such a model is fully defined by the means and variances of the various Zernike modes and by the covariance between all possible pairs of modes.

We propose a sieve maximum likelihood (ML) estimation procedure for a broad class of semiparametric multivariate distribution models.
This class of models has gained popularity in diverse fields due to a) its flexibility in separately modeling the dependence structure and the marginal behaviors of a multivariate random variable, and b) its circumvention of the "curse of dimensionality" associated with purely nonparametric multivariate distributions.
We show that the plug-in sieve ML estimates of all smooth functionals, including the finite dimensional copula parameters and the unknown marginal distributions, are semiparametrically efficient; and that their asymptotic variances can be estimated consistently.

 Robustness of a semiparametric estimator of a copula
Copulas offer a convenient way of modelling multivariate observations and capturing the intrinsic dependence between the components of a multivariate random variable.
A semiparametric method for estimating the dependence parameters of copulas was proposed by Genest, Ghoudi and Rivest (1995), in which the marginal distributions are estimated nonparameterically by empirical distribution functions.
