Copulas and dependence measurement
Copulas are a general tool for assessing the dependence structure of random variables. Important properties as well as a number of examples are discussed, including Archimedean copulas and theExpand
Modified Gaussian pseudo-copula: Applications in insurance and finance
The Gaussian copula is by far the most popular copula for modeling the association in finance and insurance risk problems. However, one major drawback of Gaussian copula is that it intrinsicallyExpand
The Fourier Copula: Theory & Applications
This paper introduces a new parametric copula family based on Fourier expansions and flexible enough to describe arbitrary dependence structures. We derive its various properties and show that it canExpand
Transformations of Copulas and Measures of Concordance
We study a group of transformations mapping the collection of all copulas into itself. For every copula, they generate a variety of new copulas; this is of particular interest with regard toExpand
Copula-Based Approach to Accommodate Residential Self-Selection Effects in Travel Behavior Modeling
The results indicate that the VMT differences between households in different neighborhood types may be attributed to both built environment effects and residential self-selection effects, and indicates that use of a traditional Gaussian bivariate distribution to characterize the relationship in errors between residential choice and VMT can lead to misleading implications aboutBuilt environment effects.

A review of the use of copulas in credit derivatives and the development of alternative methodologies
Credit derivatives and their modelling have received a lot of attention in recent years. Dependence between assets is a crucial property where the contingent payment depends on a basket of underlyingExpand
Valuation of projects with minimum revenue guarantees: A Gaussian copula–based simulation approach
ABSTRACT This technical note presents a numerical simulation technique to perform valuations of infrastructure projects with minimum revenue guarantees (MRG). It is assumed that the project cashExpand

This manuscript focuses on the analysis of non-Gaussian distributed data, and the use of higher order multivariate cumulants in computer science is inspired by financial data analysis, especially by the safe investment portfolio evaluation. Expand
Developing a Wide Easy-to-Generate Class of Bivariate Copulas
As of late, copulas have drawn great attention in stochastic simulation, financial engineering, and risk management. Their power lies under their ability of modeling dependent random variables. UsingExpand
Modeling Document Networks with Tree-Averaged Copula Regularization
This paper introduces a new tool, called copula, to separately model the documents and links, so that different copula functions can be applied to capture different correlation patterns. Expand

Chapter 8 – Modelling Dependence with Copulas and Applications to Risk Management
The dependence between random variables is completely described by their joint distribution. However, dependence and marginal behavior can be separated. The copula of a multivariate distribution canExpand
An Introduction to Copulas
The study of copulas and their role in statistics is a new but vigorously growing field. In this book the student or practitioner of statistics and probability will find discussions of theExpand
Quantitative Risk Management: Concepts, Techniques, and Tools
Because the text uses Excel exclusively, students entering the job market or applying for graduate school cannot claim knowledge of a statistical package—a potentially marketable skill. Expand

Couples coping with a myocardial infarction: a contextual perspective on wives' distress.
Results suggest the need to acknowledge the limitations on adaptation imposed by health and the health care system and there may be tradeoffs between preserving one's own well-being and contributing to a partner's efficacy. Expand
