Re: How to sample a 2-dim. r.v. with known density function?
Hi Tony, thanks for your informative response! I looked up some stuff on the rejection method you mention and I was able with some basic transformation and estimation to find a dominating density that represents just two independent Gaussians conditioned to be non-negative :). I understand that the ratio p(x,y)/p0(x,y) is important in order to avoid getting too many rejections before acceptance, I have to yet to try and see if the estimate is good enough in this sense. - Kees
