AbstractIt is possible for a nonnormal bivariate distribution to have conditional distribution functions that are normal in both directions. This article presents several examples, with graphs, including a counterintuitive bimodal joint density. The graphs simultaneously display the joint density and the conditional density functions, which appear as Gaussian curves in the three-dimensional plots.
