# MultivarDistrList-class: List of multivariate distributions In distrEllipse: S4 Classes for Elliptically Contoured Distributions

## Description

Create a list of multivariate distributions

## Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("MVDistrList", ...)`. More frequently they are created via the generating function `MultivarDistrList`.

## Slots

`.Data`:

Object of class `"list"`. A list of multivariate distributions of the same dimension.

## Extends

Class `"DistrList"`, directly.
Class `"list"`, by class `"DistrList"`.
Class `"vector"`, by class `"DistrList"`.

## Methods

coerce

`signature(from = "MultivariateDistribution", to = "MultivarDistrList")`: create a `MultivarDistrList` object from a univariate distribution

dimension

dim of the range space.

dim

synonym to dimension.

## Details

In fact, class `"MultivarDistrList"` is an inbetween class between class `"DistrList"` and class `"UnivarDistrList"`, which is a case for `setIs`, but we would have to modify the metadata information in package distr to realize this. So we introduce a new (sister) class `"MVDistrList"` which implements strictly lists of multivariate distributions, and which together with `"UnivarDistrList"` is a subclass of the common class union class `"MultivarDistrList"`.

## Examples

 ```1 2 3 4``` ```(DL1 <- MultivarDistrList(Norm(), Exp(), Pois())) (DL2 <- MultivarDistrList(MVNorm(), EllipticalDistribution(radDistr=Exp(), loc=c(1,2), scale=diag(c(3,1))),MVt())) ```
