comment Algorithms for computing or numerically approximating the Prokhorov metric?
@icurays1. My motivation is purely to get a deeper understanding of the Prokhorov metric itself. I was hoping that a constructive approach through algorithms was one such path.

As a hint, the exponential of a quadratic term is proportional to the density of the normal distribution. As a second hint, integration by parts.
