Abstract: Let $ \mathcal F_d$ be the collection of all $ d$-dimensional probability distribution functions on $ [0,1]^d$, $ d\ge 2$. The metric entropy of $ \mathcal F_d$ under the $ L_2([0,1]^d)$ norm is studied. The exact rate is obtained for $ d=1,2$ and bounds are given for $ d>3$. Connections with small deviation probability for Brownian sheets under the sup-norm are established.
