This is a vague question and I apologize in advance for not being able to explain it better.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm combining r.v.'s from different populations (distributions). The resulting population can be thought to come from amixture distribution. I think another way of describing the resulting distribution may be by the use ofcopulas.

I'm wondering if there are other ways aside from mixture distributions and copulas.

Many thanks
