This paper introduces inter-order formulas for partial and complete moments of a Student t distribution with n degrees of freedom. We show how the partial moment of order n − j about any real value m can be expressed in terms of the partial moment of order j − 1 for j in { 1 , . . . , n } . Closed form expressions for the complete moments are also established. We then focus on L p -quantiles, which represent a class of generalized quantiles deﬁned through an asymmetric p -power loss function…

The class of quantiles lies at the heart of extreme-value theory and is one of the basic tools in risk management. The alternative family of expectiles is based on squared rather than absolute error
