Bayesian inference for generalized extreme value distribution with Gaussian copula dependence

  title={Bayesian inference for generalized extreme value distribution with Gaussian copula dependence},
  author={Bo Ning and Peter R. Bloomfield},
  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
Dependent generalized extreme value (dGEV) models have attracted much attention due to the dependency structure that often appears in real datasets. To construct a dGEV model, a natural approach is to assume that some parameters in the model are time-varying. A previous study has shown that a dependent Gumbel process can be naturally incorporated into a GEV model. The model is a nonlinear state space model with a hidden state that follows a Markov process, with its innovation following a Gumbel… 
On skew generalized extreme value-ARMA model: An application to average monthly temperature (1901-2016) in Nigeria
This study describes the approach for modeling extreme and lengthy time-varying series of an Autoregressive Moving Average of order ( , ) p q via a Skew Generalized Extreme Value distribution as the
Assessing Extreme Value Analysis to predict rare events from the Global Terrorism Database
Abstract Extreme value methods have commonly been used to predict and quantify uncertainty around environmental or climatological events that could have high impact on human casualties or costs (e.g.


Bayesian modeling of dynamic extreme values: extension of generalized extreme value distributions with latent stochastic processes
ABSTRACT This paper develops Bayesian inference of extreme value models with a flexible time-dependent latent structure. The generalized extreme value distribution is utilized to incorporate state

A key innovation is a Metropolis–Hastings method for the time series of state variables based on sequential approximation of filtering and smoothing densities using normal mixtures, which provides accurate, direct approximations to sequential filtering and retrospective smoothing distributions.
Dynamic generalized extreme value modeling via particle filters
Estimation of a time-varying extreme value model via the generalized extreme value distribution is considered using these particle filter methods and compared to a MCMC algorithm that involves a variety of Metropolis-Hastings steps.
Covariance structure of the Gibbs sampler with applications to the comparisons of estimators and augmentation schemes
It is proved that Rao-Blackwellization causes a one-lag delay for the autocovariances among dependent samples obtained from data augmentation, and consequently, the mixture approximation produces estimates with smaller variances than the empirical approximation.
Time-varying models for extreme values
We propose a new approach for modeling extreme values that are measured in time and space. First we assume that the observations follow a Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) distribution for which the
On particle Gibbs sampling
This paper presents a coupling construction between two particle Gibbs updates from different starting points and shows that the coupling probability may be made arbitrarily close to one by increasing the number of particles, and extends particle Gibbs to work with lower variance resampling schemes.
Particle Markov chain Monte Carlo methods
It is shown here how it is possible to build efficient high dimensional proposal distributions by using sequential Monte Carlo methods, which allows not only to improve over standard Markov chain Monte Carlo schemes but also to make Bayesian inference feasible for a large class of statistical models where this was not previously so.
Backward Simulation Methods for Monte Carlo Statistical Inference
This tutorial reviews and discusses several related backward-simulation-based methods for state inference as well as learning of static parameters, both using a frequentistic and a Bayesian approach.
