# List of multivariate 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"`

.
