@article{Bucher2017InferenceFH, title={Inference for heavy tailed stationary time series based on sliding blocks}, author={Axel Bucher and J. Segers}, journal={Electronic Journal of Statistics}, year={2017}, volume={12}, pages={1098-1125} }

The block maxima method in extreme value theory consists of fitting an extreme value distribution to a sample of block maxima extracted from a time series. Traditionally, the maxima are taken over disjoint blocks of observations. Alternatively, the blocks can be chosen to slide through the observation period, yielding a larger number of overlapping blocks. Inference based on sliding blocks is found to be more efficient than inference based on disjoint blocks. The asymptotic variance of the… Expand
