Abstract

The lower dimensional marginal density functions of a truncated multivariate density function is derived in general, and shown that it is a function of untruncated marginal density function, appropriately defined conditional distribution function and size of the multivariate truncation region. As a special case, lower dimensional marginal density function of a truncated multivariate normal distribution is given.
