We study the average case complexity of a linear multivariate problem (LMP) defined on functions of d variables. We consider two classes of information. The first Astd consists of function values and the second A*11 of all continuous linear functionals. Tractability of LMP means that the average case complexity is 0((l/e)p) with p independent of d. We prove that tractability of an LMP in Astd is equivalent to tractability in A311, although the proof is not constructive. We provide a simple

We find the order of the average case complexity and optimal sample points for multivariate function approximation. The theoretical results are illustrated for the folded Wiener sheet measure.
