Re: how to visualize 3+D normal density contour?


An EllipsoidQuantile can be used to visualize one surface.

<< Statistics`MultinormalDistribution`

dist = MultinormalDistribution[{0, 0, 0}, {{1, .5, .5}, {.5,
       1, .5}, {.5, .5, 1}}, x];

Show[Graphics3D[EllipsoidQuantile[dist, .5]], Axes -> True]


To visualize more than one at a time, the surfaces would need to be sliced 
in some way to see the inner surfaces.

Show[Table[Graphics3D[
     EllipsoidQuantile[dist, q]], {q, .1, .9, .2}], Axes -> True, PlotRange 
-> {All, {0, 3}, All}]
