Gaussian copula.

e utilize the statements ( Sklar theorem 1 ),( Sklar theorem 2 ) to execute a program MATH where MATH are jointly standard normal variables. For the first step, correlation matrix of MATH is the input data and we recover correlated uniform variables MATH according to the formula ( Sklar theorem 2 ). For the second step, the input data is a collection MATH of marginal distributions for each variable $\tilde{X}_{i}$ .

Thus, we can equip any collection of random variables MATH given by their marginal distribution with interdependency controlled by a correlation matrix.
