[R] Bivariate Normal Variables and correlation

From: Marina Niessner <marinak_at_uchicago.edu>

I have two variables X and Y that have a bivariate standard normal distribution. From the data I can obtain the probability that

P(X >= a, Y>= b) where "a" and "b" are cutoff values. Is there a way to calculate the Corr(X,Y) using this information?  

Thank you very much,
