Computation of the product moments of the truncated multivariate Student-t (TMVT) distribution under the double truncation have been presented by Lachos et al. (2017) (see also, Ho et al. (2012)). Following Lachos et al. (2017), this paper develops recurrence relations for integrals that involve the density of multivariate scale mixtures of skew-normal (SMSN) distributions. These recursions offer fast computation of arbitrary order product moments of truncated multivariate SMSN (TMVSMSN) and folded multivariate SMSN (FMVSMSN) distributions with the first two moments of the TMVSMSN and FMVSMSN as a byproduct. With these results, application to data containing bounded and missing responses is possible. The proposed methods will be implemented to a new R package (integrating C++ and Fortran), providing practitioners a convenient tool for further applications in several fields. (AU)
