Transfer of Global Measures of Dependence into Cumulative Local
Abstract: We explore an idea of transferring some classic measures of global dependence between random variables Χ1, Χ2, L, Χn into cumulative measures of dependence relative at any point (χ1, χ2, L, χn) in the sample space. It allows studying the behavior of these measures throughout the sample space, and better understanding and use of dependence. Some examples on popular copula distributions are also provided.
