Multivariate Peaks Over Threshold

We already realized in the univariate case that, from the conceptual viewpoint, the peaks-over-threshold method is a bit more complicated than the annual maxima method. One cannot expect that the questions are getting simpler in the multivariate setting. Subsequently, our attention is primarily restricted to the bivariate case, this topic is fully worked out in 16 , 2nd ed., for any dimension. A new result about the testing of tail dependence is added in Section 13.3. 13.1 Nonparametric and...

The p-value, modified with a Bartlett correction, is for b 4.0. Recall that u is replaced by xn-k n if the largest ordered values are taken instead of exceedances. 5.3 Testing Extreme Value Conditions with Applications co authored by J. Hiisler and D. Li24 We introduce two methods of testing one dimensional extreme value conditions and apply them to two financial data sets and a simulated sample. Introduction and the Test Statistics Extreme value theory EVT can be applied in many fields of...

There is a general device to replace an LR-statistic TLR by TLR 1 b n to achieve a higher accuracy in the x2-approximation12. A Test-Statistic Suggested by LAN-Theory Marohn13 applies the LAN-approach to deduce a test statistic for the testing problem 4.5 . Let x - x - y a x - y a 2 1 - exp - x - y a 2, x -1 a x - y a 1- exp - x - y a a, x 1 exp - x - y a a . The test-statistic can be approximately represented by x N.6449 xj - a x 0.5066 V2iMjCT xj p x 2 Tn,A x ,i x x 0.69 - 1, where t x and a...

Mean Excess Functions

The mean excess function eF of a df F respectively, of a random variable X is given by the conditional expectation of X u given X gt u. We have eF u E X u X gt u xdF u x , u lt w F . 2.20 It is evident that eF u is the mean of the excess df at u. The mean excess function eF is also called the mean residual life function, see, e.g., 28 . Note that u aeF u M a , 2.21 where and a are the location and scale parameters. In conjunction with the visualization of data, we are expressly interested in...

Parametric Modeling

Chapter 1 is basic for the understanding of the main subjects treated in this book. It is assumed that the given data are generated according to a random mechanism that can be linked to some parametric statistical model. In this chapter, the parametric models will be justified by means of mathematical arguments, namely by limit theorems. In this manner, extreme value EV and generalized Pareto GP models are introduced that are central for the statistical analysis of maxima or minima and of...
