Moments of random vectors with skew t distribution and their quadratic forms Academic Article uri icon


  • Moments of skew t random vectors and their quadratic forms are derived. It is shown that the moments of the sample autocovariance function and of the sample variogram estimator depend on a measure of multivariate kurtosis, but not on a skewness parameter. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
