Abstract:

The bivariate, and trivariate, density of the absolute normal distribution is shown to be totally positive of order 2. These results are then used to show that a generalized bivariate, and trivariate, t, x squared and F distributions are associated. A conjecture of the total positivity of the multivariate absolute normal distribution and association of a multivariate t-distribution is given.
