I am looking for multivariate case of a distribution of a product of two normally distributed variables X and Y. The variables are independent. Something similar to this:



  1. Both X and Y are vectors and Gaussians are multivariate $N(\mu_x,\Sigma_x)$ and $N(\mu_y,\Sigma_y)$
  2. Both distributions have non-zero respective means $\mu_x$ and $\mu_y$
  • $\begingroup$ How are you defining the product of the vectors $X$ and $Y$? Inner product? Term-by-term product? $\endgroup$ – Dilip Sarwate May 14 '13 at 2:45
