Focused information criteria for copulas

TLDR
The results from the study show that the FIC successfully ranks candidate models in terms of their performance, defined as how well they estimate the focus parameter, and clearly outperforms AIC.

Copula Averaging for Tail Dependence in Insurance Claims Data

TLDR
This model-based coefficient estimation method is illustrated through a variety of copula fitting approaches and results are presented for several simulated data sets and also a real general insurance loss data set.

Nonparametric C- and D-vine-based quantile regression

TLDR
This work introduces a nonrestrictive and highly flexible nonparametric quantile regression approach based on C- and D-vine copulas that incorporates a two-step ahead ordering of variables, by maximizing the conditional log-likelihood of the tree sequence, while taking into account the next two tree levels.

Model robust inference for copulae via two-stage maximum likelihood estimation

This article is concerned with inference in parametric copula setups, where both the marginals and the copula have parametric forms. For such models, two-stage maximum likelihood estimation, often

The Copula Information Criteria

TLDR
Two types of Akaike information criterion (AIC)‐like model‐selection formulae for the semiparametric pseudo‐maximum likelihood procedure for copula models with densities that grow very fast near the edge of the unit cube are derived.

Statistical testing of covariate effects in conditional copula models

TLDR
This work develops methodology for testing a parametric formulation of the calibration function against a general alternative and proposes a generalized likelihood ratio-type test that enables conditional copula model diagnostics and derives the asymptotic null distribution of the proposed test.

Using Conditional Copula to Estimate Value at Risk

TLDR
This work presents some concepts and properties of copula functions and an application of the copula theory in the estimation of VaR of a portfolio composed by Nasdaq and S&P500 stock indices.

Model selection and multimodel inference : a practical information-theoretic approach

The second edition of this book is unique in that it focuses on methods for making formal statistical inference from all the models in an a priori set (Multi-Model Inference). A philosophy is

Parametric or nonparametric: The FIC approach

Should one rely on a parametric or nonparametric model when analysing a given data set? This classic question cannot be answered by traditional model selection criteria like AIC and BIC, since a

A new look at the statistical model identification

The history of the development of statistical hypothesis testing in time series analysis is reviewed briefly and it is pointed out that the hypothesis testing procedure is not adequately defined as
