Abstract: The cumulative bivariate -distribution associated with random variables , is considered where , are bivariate normal with correlation coefficient and is an independent random variable with degrees of freedom. Representations in terms of series and simple, one-dimensional quadratures are presented together with efficient computational procedures for the special functions used in numerical evaluation.
