# Is the Gaussian copula (for d=2) with normal margins identical to the bivariate normal?

In the 2 dimensional case, if I consider the Gaussian copula, is this identical to the bivariate normal distribution, in the case I choose the normal distribution for the margins?

Does this hold for multidemsionality? So is a d-dimensional Gaussian copula with normal margins identical to the multivariate normal distribution?

• Since the Gaussian copula results from taking a multivariate normal and transforming the margins to uniformity, a multivariate distribution with Gaussian copula and normal margins is multivariate normal. – Glen_b -Reinstate Monica Jul 2 '13 at 11:00
