The construction of multivariate distributions from univariate marginal distributions using normal copulas is discussed in Song (2000). Briefly, given univariate marginal densities and the corresponding distribution functions (here, the exponential distribution), the standard normal quantiles of the values of the distribution functions follow a multivariate standard normal distribution, that is, a multivariate normal distribution with marginal means of 0 and marginal variances of 1. Thus the covariance matrix is referred to as the correlation matrix in this context.

For `dmvexp`

, a vector of densities. For `rmvexp`

, a vector with `n`

rows and `ncol(corr)`

columns representing a sample from the multivariate exp distribution with the specified parameters.
