We study a new technique for the asymptotic analysis of heavy-tailed systems conditioned on large deviations events. We illustrate our approach in the context of ruin events of multidimensional regularly varying random walks. Our approach is to study the Markov process described by the random walk conditioned on hitting a rare target set. We construct a Markov chain whose transition kernel can be evaluated directly from the increment distribution of the associated random walk. This process isdoi:10.3150/12-bej492 fatcat:vljqv6zgnvgenmsf4m7q2lmmia
