A class of smooth, possibly data-adaptive nonparametric copula estimators containing the empirical beta copula

  title={A class of smooth, possibly data-adaptive nonparametric copula estimators containing the empirical beta copula},
  author={Ivan Kojadinovic and Bingqing Yi},
A broad class of smooth, possibly data-adaptive nonparametric copula estimators that contains empirical Bernstein copulas introduced by Sancetta and Satchell (and thus the empirical beta copula proposed by Segers, Sibuya and Tsukahara) is studied. Within this class, a subclass of estimators that depend on a scalar parameter determining the amount of marginal smoothing and a functional parameter controlling the shape of the smoothing region is specifically considered. Empirical investigations of…

The author aims to introduce a Bayesian approach for developing efficient and rigorous statistical methodologies in SEMs and applying them to practical problems, and the Bayesian development presented in this book should be attractive to any serious researcher using SEMs.

The empirical beta copula

A dependent multiplier bootstrap for the sequential empirical copula process under strong mixing

Two key ingredients to carry out inference on the copula of multivariate observations are the empirical copula process and an appropriate resampling scheme for the latter. Among the existing

Resampling Procedures with Empirical Beta Copulas

This paper shows the asymptotic equivalence of several bootstrapped processes related to the empirical copula and empirical beta copula, and investigates the finite-sample properties of resampling schemes based on the empirical (beta) copula by Monte Carlo simulation.

A Note on Weak Convergence of the Sequential Multivariate Empirical Process Under Strong Mixing

This article investigates weak convergence of the sequential $$d$$d-dimensional empirical process under strong mixing. Weak convergence is established for mixing rates $$\alpha _n =


We define the Bernstein copula and study its statistical properties in terms of both distributions and densities. We also develop a theory of approximation for multivariate distributions in terms of

A model for association in bivariate life tables and its application in epidemiological studies of familial tendency in chronic disease incidence

SUMMARY The application of Cox's (1972) regression model for censored survival data to epidemiological studies of chronic disease incidence is discussed. A related model for association in bivariate
