We consider the high order moments estimator of the frontier of a random pair, intro-high order moments. In the present paper, we show that this estimator is strongly uniformly consistent on compact sets and its rate of convergence is given when the conditional cumulative distribution function belongs to the Hall class of distribution functions.
In extreme value theory, the so-called extreme-value index is a parameter that controls the behavior of a distribution function in its right tail. Knowing this parameter is thus essential to solve many problems related to extreme events. In this paper, the estimation of the extreme-value index is considered in the presence of a random covariate, whether the… (More)
