Abstract : The key position of the normal distribution, both in probability and statistics, has led to extensive theory and applications of this density function. The paper investigates special properties of equi-distributional contours, defined as a functional relationship between lower limits on the range of integration for the upper bivariate normal cumulative distribution with fixed value. Prior to a presentation of these results and their application, important statistical functions are first introduced. (Author)
