Get Price### Gaussian Copula Regression Application

· Gaussian copula models are frequently used to extend univariate regression models to the multivariate case. The main benefit of the topic is that the specification of the regression model is conveniently separated from the dependence structure described in the familiar form of the correlation matrix of a multivariate Gaussian distribution. This form of flexibility has been successfully employed
