Testing the constancy of Spearman’s rho in multivariate time series

A class of tests for change-point detection designed to be particularly sensitive to changes in the cross-sectional rank correlation of multivariate time series is proposed. The derived procedures

Testing constant cross-sectional dependence with time-varying marginal distributions in parametric models

Abstract This paper proposes parametric two-step procedures for assessing the stability of cross-sectional dependency measures in the presence of potential breaks in the marginal distributions. The

Monitoring Test for Stability of Dependence Structure in Multivariate Data Based on Copula

A cusum type of monitoring test based on the empiricalCopula function is proposed and applied to the detection of the distributional changes in copula function and it is shown that under regularity conditions, its limiting null distribution is the same as the sup of Kiefer process.

Time-varying copula models for financial time series

Abstract We perform an analysis of the potential time inhomogeneity in the dependence between multiple financial time series. To this end, we use the framework of copula theory and tackle the

Combining Cumulative Sum Change‐Point Detection Tests for Assessing the Stationarity of Univariate Time Series

We derive tests of stationarity for univariate time series by combining change‐point tests sensitive to changes in the contemporary distribution with tests sensitive to changes in the serial

Robust Change Detection in the Dependence Structure of Multivariate Time Series

A robust change-point test based on the spatial sign covariance matrix is proposed. A major advantage of the test is its computational simplicity, making it particularly appealing for robust,

Nonparametric Tests for Constant Tail Dependence with an Application to Energy and Finance

New tests for detecting structural breaks in the tail dependence of multivariate time series using the concept of tail copulas are presented. To obtain asymptotic properties, we derive a new limit

A monitoring procedure for detecting structural breaks in factor copula models

A new monitoring procedure based on moving sums (MOSUM) for detecting single or multiple structural breaks in factor copula models and an online procedure for predicting the day-ahead Value-at-risk based on the suggested monitoring procedure are considered.

Consistent Estimation of Multiple Breakpoints in Dependence Measures

This paper proposes different methods to consistently detect multiple breaks in copulabased dependence measures, mainly focusing on Spearman’s ρ, and concludes that WBS performs best in many, but not in all, situations.

This paper proposes nonparametric tests of change in the distribution function of a time series. The limiting null distributions of the test statistics depend on a nuisance parameter, and critical

Multivariate Kendall's tau for change‐point detection in copulas

Statistical procedures for the detection of a change in the dependence structure of a series of multivariate observations are studied in this work. The test statistics that are proposed are $L_1$,

Large‐sample tests of extreme‐value dependence for multivariate copulas

Starting from the characterization of extreme‐value copulas based on max‐stability, large‐sample tests of extreme‐value dependence for multivariate copulas are studied. The two key ingredients of the

Consistent testing for a constant copula under strong mixing based on the tapered block multiplier technique

Identification of nonlinear time series: First order characterization and order determination

SUMMARY We study the possibility of identifying nonlinear time series using nonparametric estimates of the conditional mean and conditional variance. It is shown that most nonlinear models satisfy


Goodness-of-fit tests are a fundamental element in the copula-based mod- eling of multivariate continuous distributions. Among the different procedures pro- posed in the literature, recent large

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

A Kolmogorov-Smirnov Type Test for Positive Quadrant Dependence

We consider a consistent test, that is similar to a Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, of the complete set of restrictions that relate to the copula representation of positive quadrant dependence. For such a
