Multivariate extreme value theory assumes a multivariate domain of attraction condition for the distribution of a random vector. This necessitates that each component satisfies a marginal domain of attraction condition. An approximation of the joint distribution of a random vector obtained by conditioning on one of the components being extreme was developed by Heffernan and Tawn [12] and further studied by Heffernan and Resnick [11]. These papers left unresolved the consistency of different

We also clarify the relationship between these conditional distributions, multivariate extreme value theory and standard regular variation on cones of the form $[0,\infty]\times(0,\infty]$.
