    Double integration with normal distribution

    Hi jambaugh, Thanks for much for your suggestions. The problem is actually a subroutine of a larger problem. The larger problem frequently refer to this problem. Hence, Monte Carlo method may be too expensive to implement it. Thanks though.

    Double integration with normal distribution

    yes. Do you have ideas how to get an approximate solution that is computable and accurate enough for general purpose? Thanks

    Double integration with normal distribution

    Thanks. Yes, I think if U and V are standard normal distribution, the problem is easy to solve. If U and V are general normal distributions, it is still very hard to solve. Any ideas?

    Double integration with normal distribution

    If we let U and V are standard normal distributions, we have P(U+V<0, U<0)=\int_{A}f(u,v)dA=\int_{3\pi /4}^{3\pi /2}\int_{0}^{\infty} f(r cos(\theta),rsin(\theta))rdrd\theta=\int_{3\pi /4}^{3\pi /2}\int_{0}^{\infty} f(r cos(\theta)) f(rsin(\theta))rdrd\theta=3/8 Does anyone verify me?

    Double integration with normal distribution

    Thanks for your information, tiny-tim. I have a bit more thoughts bout the problem. P(X+Y<b, X<a) Let U=X-a, V=Y-b+a, then, we have P(U+V<0, U<0), In this form, the integral area is a sector, we can use polar coordinates to solve it., Such as, P(U+V<0, U<0)=\int_{\theta}^{3\pi...

    Normal Distribution Integral

    I think in this case, x should be greater than zero.

    Double integration with normal distribution

    Thanks to both of you. I am glad to see your replies. But I still doubt the methods are feasible to solve the problem. We can see, P(X+Y<b,X<a)=\int_{-\infty}^{a}f(x)\int_{-\infty}^{b-x}f(y)dxdy =\int_{-\infty}^{a}f(x)erf(b-x)dx However, erf(b-x) does not have a close-form...
