I was integrating a PDF of standard normal distribution on the interval [-10, 10] and the output was: 44 SARALEES NADARAJAH AND SAMUEL KOTZ mean vector and covariance matrix R. The particular case of (1) for = 0 and R = Ip is a mixture of the normal density with zero means

To calculate the integral numerically using SimpsonвЂ™s rule and approximate the four bivariate normal probabilities, five parameters should be specified in the subroutine getbnp(rho,p,q,h,lgaus,p00,p01,p10,p11,ierr) .

44 SARALEES NADARAJAH AND SAMUEL KOTZ mean vector and covariance matrix R. The particular case of (1) for = 0 and R = Ip is a mixture of the normal density with zero means We say that Zhas a standard normal distribution if it has the probability density function f Z(z) = Лљ(z) where Лљ(z) is the function Лљ(z) = 1 p 2Л‡ exp(1 2 z 2): According to Gnedenko, x22, the integral R +1 1 Лљ(z)dzis called the Poisson integral. Although this function is clearly non-negative, it is by no means clear that it integrates to unity. There are a number of methods of showing

2 Numerical integration and importance sampling 2.1 Quadrature Consider the numerical evaluation of the integral I(a,b) = Z b a dxf(x) вЂў Rectangle rule: on small interval, construct interpolating function and integrate over For a large n, that is as n tends to infinity, the Poisson distribution tends to a Normal distribution. Which, by the way also involves an exponential function. You can look up the proof in any text book on Mathematical Statistics.
