Identification of probability measures via distribution of quotients

Paweł Szabłowski , Jacek Wesołowski , Mohammad Ahsanullah


Straightforward generalizations of the classical Kotlarski characterization of normality using bivariate Cauchy distribution of quotients of independent r.v.'s are given. The symmetry assumption in Kotlarski's result is omitted. Two larger families of bivariate distributions are considered: symmetric second kind beta and elliptically contoured measures.
