Notes
The iso-probabilistic transformation is defined as follows:
An iso-probabilistic transformation is a diffeomorphism 1 from to that maps realizations of a random vector into realizations of another random vector while preserving probabilities. It is hence defined so that it satisfies:
The present implementation of the iso-probabilistic transformation maps realizations into realizations of a random vector with spherical distribution 2. To be more specific:
if the distribution is elliptical, then the transformed distribution is simply made spherical using the Nataf (linear) transformation.
if the distribution has an elliptical Copula, then the transformed distribution is made spherical using the generalized Nataf transformation.
otherwise, the transformed distribution is the standard multivariate Normal distribution and is obtained by means of the Rosenblatt transformation.

A differentiable map is called a diffeomorphism if it is a bijection and its inverse is differentiable as well. Hence, the iso-probabilistic transformation implements a gradient (and even a Hessian).
