Let T = (X,Y,Z) be a Gaussian for which X,Y,Z for which X, Y, Z are standard normals, such that E[XY] = E[YZ] = E[XZ] = 1/2.

A) Calculate the characteristics function Φ_T(u,v,w) of T.

B) Calculate the density of T.

2.

Let X and Y be N(0,1) (standard normals), not necessarily independent. Calculate E[Max(X,Y)] using two different ways:

A) Use the joint density of X and Y and use the fact that for two numbers x and y, max(x,y) = x if x > y and y if y > x.

B) Use the change of variables x = x and y = ρx = u*sqrt(1-ρ^2) in your integral.

3.

Given random variables X and Y whose second moments exit, prove the triangle inequality

E[(X+Y)^2]^(1/2) <= E[X^2]^(1/2) + E[Y^2]^(1/2)

Help guys, this is for my Advanced Probability Course and I am stuck on it. :/
