Extreme values of real phenomena are events that occur with low frequency, but can have a large impact on real life. These are, in many practical problems, high-dimensional by nature (e.g. Tawn, 1990; Coles and Tawn, 1991). To study these events is of fundamental importance. For this purpose, probabilistic models and statistical methods are in high demand. There are several approaches to modelling multivariate extremes as described in Falk et al. (2011), linked to some extent. We describe an…

A semi‐parametric stochastic generator for bivariate extreme events
The analysis of multiple extreme values aims to describe the stochastic behaviour of observations in the joint upper tail of a distribution function. For instance, being able to simulate multivariate
High-dimensional inference using the extremal skew-t process
Max-stable processes are a popular tool for the study of environmental extremes, and the extremal skew- t process is a general model that allows for a flexible extremal dependence structure. For
Exploratory data analysis for moderate extreme values using non-parametric kernel methods
In many settings it is critical to accurately model the extreme tail behaviour of a random process. Non-parametric density estimation methods are commonly implemented as exploratory data analysis
Estimation and uncertainty quantification for extreme quantile regions
Univariate and bivariate schemes for estimating extreme quantile regions under the Bayesian paradigm that outperforms existing approaches and provides natural measures of quantile region estimate uncertainty are developed.
Bayesian Inference for the Extremal Dependence
A simple approach for modeling multivariate extremes is to consider the vector of component-wise maxima and their max-stable distributions. The extremal dependence can be inferred by estimating the
Joint inference on extreme expectiles for multivariate heavy-tailed distributions
The notion of expectiles, originally introduced in the context of testing for homoscedasticity and conditional symmetry of the error distribution in linear regression, induces a law-invariant,
Strong Consistency of Nonparametric Bayesian Inferential Methods for Multivariate Max-Stable Distributions
Predicting extreme events is important in many applications in risk analysis. The extreme-value theory suggests modelling extremes by max-stable distributions. The Bayesian approach provides a

Models for extremal dependence derived from skew-symmetric families
Skew-symmetric families of distributions such as the skew-normal and skew-$t$ represent supersets of the normal and $t$ distributions, and they exhibit richer classes of extremal behaviour. By

Modelling multivariate extreme value distributions
SUMMARY Multivariate extreme value distributions arise as the limiting joint distribution of normalized componentwise maxima/minima. No parametric family exists for the depen- dence between the
Modelling Extreme Multivariate Events
SUMMARY The classical treatment of multivariate extreme values is through componentwise ordering, though in practice most interest is in actual extreme events. Here the point process of observations
An Introduction to Statistical Modeling of Extreme Values
Stuart Coles’s book on the modeling of extreme values provides an introductory text on the topic, a modeling-oriented text with an emphasis on different types of data and analytical approaches, meant for individuals with moderate statistical background.
A mixture model for multivariate extremes
This thesis is a contribution to multivariate extreme value statistics. The tail of a multivariate distribution function is characterized by its spectral distribution, for which we propose a new

We propose a multivariate extreme value threshold model for joint tail estimation which overcomes the problems encountered with existing techniques when the variables are near independence. We

Dependence modelling for spatial extremes
Current dependence models for spatial extremes are based upon max-stable processes. Within this class, there are few inferentially viable models available, and we propose one further model. More

Max-stable processes arise from an infinite-dimensional generalisation of extreme value theory. They form a natural class of processes when sample maxima are observed at each site of a spatial
