The extreme value dependence of regularly varying stationary time series can be described by the spectral tail process. Drees et al. (Extremes 18 (3), 369–402, 2015 ) proposed estimators of the marginal distributions of this process based on exceedances over high deterministic thresholds and analyzed their asymptotic behavior. In practice, however, versions of the estimators are applied which use exceedances over random thresholds like intermediate order statistics. We prove that these modified… 

Asymptotics for sliding blocks estimators of rare events

Drees and Rootzen (2010) have established limit theorems for a general class of empirical processes of statistics that are useful for the extreme value analysis of time series, but do not apply to

Bootstrapping Hill estimator and tail array sums for regularly varying time series

In the extreme value analysis of stationary regularly varying time series, tail array sums form a broad class of statistics suitable to analyze their extremal behavior. This class includes e.g. the

Estimation of cluster functionals for regularly varying time series: sliding blocks estimators

Cluster indices describe extremal behaviour of stationary time series. We consider their sliding blocks estimators. Using a modern theory of multivariate, regularly varying time series, we obtain

Estimation of cluster functionals for regularly varying time series: Runs estimators

Cluster indices describe extremal behaviour of stationary time series. We consider runs estimators of cluster indices. Using a modern theory of multivariate, regularly varying time series, we obtain

Improved Estimation of the Extreme Value Index Using Related Variables

Heavy tailed phenomena are naturally analyzed by extreme value statistics. A crucial step in such an analysis is the estimation of the extreme value index, which describes the tail heaviness of the

Tail Risk in the Chinese Vegetable Oil Market: Based on the EGAS-EVT Model

This paper uses extreme value theory and exponential generalised autoregressive score models to estimate the tail extremes of financial return series. The peak-over-threshold method based on the

Statistics for tail processes of Markov chains

At high levels, the asymptotic distribution of a stationary, regularly varying Markov chain is conveniently given by its tail process. The latter takes the form of a geometric random walk, the

Extreme quantile estimation for dependent data with applications to finance

The asymptotic normality of a class of estimators for extreme quantiles is established under mild structural conditions on the observed stationary \beta-mixing time series. Consistent estimators of

Bootstrapping Empirical Processes of Cluster Functionals with Application to Extremograms

In the extreme value analysis of time series, not only the tail behavior is of interest, but also the serial dependence plays a crucial role. Drees and Rootz\'en (2010) established limit theorems for

The cluster index of regularly varying sequences with applications to limit theory for functions of multivariate Markov chains

We introduce the cluster index of a multivariate stationary sequence and characterize the index in terms of the spectral tail process. This index plays a major role in limit theory for partial sums

Stationarity, Mixing, Distributional Properties and Moments of GARCH(p, q)-Processes

This paper collects some of the well known probabilistic properties of GARCH(p, q) processes. In particular, we address the question of strictly and of weakly stationary solutions. We further
