# An exceptional max-stable process fully parameterized by its extremal coefficients

@article{Strokorb2015AnEM, title={An exceptional max-stable process fully parameterized by its extremal coefficients}, author={K. Strokorb and M. Schlather}, journal={Bernoulli}, year={2015}, volume={21}, pages={276-302} }

The extremal coefficient function (ECF) of a max-stable process X on some index set T assigns to each finite subset A⊂T the effective number of independent random variables among the collection {Xt}t∈A. We introduce the class of Tawn–Molchanov processes that is in a 1:1 correspondence with the class of ECFs, thus also proving a complete characterization of the ECF in terms of negative definiteness. The corresponding Tawn–Molchanov process turns out to be exceptional among all max-stable… Expand
