A Family of Truncated Skew-Normal Distributions

The paper extends earlier work on the skew-normal distribution, a family of distributions including normal, but with extra parameter to regulate skewness. The present work introduces a singly truncated parametric family that strictly includes a truncated normal distribution, and studies its properties, with special emphasis on the relation with bivariate normal distribution.
