Abstract: In this paper, we propose one new alternative formula for moment generating function of random vectors via the inverse survival function. A recursive formula for moment generating function of random vector is obtained and as application, we derive the corresponding alternative formula for mixed moment. Several examples are also presented along with the theory.
