I've computed a distribution function f(m,v) by taking partials of P(X<m, Y<v) with respect to m, v. Suppose I wanted the distribution function for P(X-Y > a). Since I know f(m,v), can I use that to help me compute my new distribution function by taking partials? If so, how? I'm a little confused about this. Any good resources/references?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
