Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for subsets of dependence measures to be self-consistent, that is, to guarantee the existence of a distribution with such a subset of values for the dependence  ...  The methods are illustrated through an analysis of simu- 62 STATISTICS 2370 lated multivariate data, which shows that a lack of self-consistency is frequently a problem with the existing estimators, and  ... 

A conditional approach for multivariate extreme values (with discussion)

Janet E. Heffernan, Jonathan A. Tawn
2004 Journal of The Royal Statistical Society Series B-statistical Methodology  
Multivariate extreme value theory and methods concern the characterization, estimation and extrapolation of the joint tail of the distribution of a d-dimensional random variable.  ...  Under an assumption about the asymptotic form of the joint distribution of a d-dimensional random variable conditional on its having an extreme component, we develop an entirely new semiparametric approach  ...  This and the measurement programmes are funded by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Scottish Executive, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Department of the Environment  ...

Dependence Properties of Multivariate Max-Stable Distributions [article]

Ioannis Papastathopoulos, Jonathan A. Tawn
2012 arXiv   pre-print
For an m-dimensional multivariate extreme value distribution there exist 2^m-1 exponent measures which are linked and completely characterise the dependence of the distribution and all of its lower dimensional  ...  In this paper we generalise the inequalities of Schlather and Tawn (2002) for the sets of extremal coefficients and construct bounds that higher order exponent measures need to satisfy to be consistent  ...  The dependence properties of max-stable distributions have received attention in the multivariate extreme value literature.  ...

On Asymptotic Properties of the Separating Hill Estimator [article]

Matias Heikkilä, Yves Dominicy, Pauliina Ilmonen
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The separating Hill estimator can be used in estimating the extreme value index of a heavy tailed multivariate elliptical distribution.  ...  We show, analytically, that the separating Hill estimator is consistent and asymptotically normal under estimated location and scatter, when certain mild conditions are met.  ...  Estimation of a positive extreme value index The extreme value index yields the limiting distribution of the extreme order statistics subject to a sequence of appropriately chosen affine normalizations  ...

Statistical modelling of extreme ocean environments for marine design: A review

Philip Jonathan, Kevin Ewans
2013 Ocean Engineering  
Extreme value analysis is inherently different to other empirical modelling, in that estimating the tail (rather than the body) of a distribution from a sample of data, and extrapolation beyond the sample  ...  Effective modelling of multivariate extremes will improve the specification of design conditions for systems whose response cannot be easily characterised in terms of one variable.  ...  The conditional approach consists of (1) transforming each variable so that marginally its values are consistent with a sample from the standard Gumbel distribution, (2) estimating the parameters of the  ...

Estimating Latent Variable Interactions With Nonnormal Observed Data: A Comparison of Four Approaches

Heining Cham, Stephen G. West, Yue Ma, Leona S. Aiken
2012 Multivariate Behavioral Research  
In highly non-normal conditions, the GAPI and UPI approaches with ML estimation yielded unbiased latent interaction effect estimates, with acceptable actual Type-I error rates for both the Wald and likelihood  ...  An empirical example illustrated the use of the four approaches in testing a latent variable interaction between academic self-efficacy and positive family role models in the prediction of academic performance  ...  ML estimation provides high efficiency and consistency in parameter estimation under conditions of multivariate normality of the observed variables (Bollen, 1989, p. 108) .  ...

Sabrina Vettori, Raphaël Huser, Marc G. Genton
2017 Statistics and computing  
Various non-parametric and parametric estimators of extremal dependence have been proposed in the literature.  ...  Non-parametric methods commonly suffer from the curse of dimensionality and have been mostly implemented in extreme-value studies up to three dimensions, whereas parametric models can tackle higher-dimensional  ...  Therefore, in this simulation experiment we complement previous comparison studies by simulating the data from distributions in the MDA of the multivariate extreme-value distribution G characterized by  ...
