Hi all,

Looking to calculate the expected mean and variance of a ratio distribution where the source distributions are gaussian with known parameters and sample values are correlated. I see (from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Ratio_distribution#Gaussian_ratio_distribution) that this calculation is quite involved, so I'm hoping that someone has already coded a function to achieve this.
