We develop Stein's method for the Frechet distribution and apply it to com- pute rates of convergence in distribution of renormalized sample maxima to the Frechet distribution.

### Remark on rates of convergence to extreme value distributions via the Stein equations

• Mathematics
• 2020
Consider the maximum of independent and identically distributed random variables. The classical result says that the renormalized sample maximum converges to an extreme value distributions, under

### RATE OF CONVERGENCE TOWARD THE FREE EXTREME VALUE DISTRIBUTIONS VIA THE STEIN’S METHOD

Let {Xn}n be a sequence of freely independent, identically distributed non-commutative random variables. Consider a sequence {Wn}n of the renormalized maximum of random variables X1, · · · , Xn. It

### Rates of convergence for laws of the spectral maximum of free random variables

Let {Xn}n be a sequence of freely independent, identically distributed non-commutative random variables. Consider a sequence {Wn}n of the renormalized spectral maximum of random variables X1, · · · ,

### Information-theoretic convergence of extreme values to the Gumbel distribution

It is shown that, assuming certain properties of the von Mises representation, convergence to the Gumbel can be proved in the strong sense of relative entropy, and a new type of score function is introduced which behaves well under the maximum operation.

### Stein's method for comparison of univariate distributions

• Mathematics
• 2014
We propose a new general version of Stein's method for univariate distributions. In particular we propose a canonical definition of the Stein operator of a probability distribution {which is based on

### Approximate Computation of Expectations: the Canonical Stein Operator

• Mathematics
• 2014
We propose a canonical definition of the Stein operator and Stein class of a distribution. The resulting Stein identity highlights the unifying theme behind the literature on Stein's method. Viewing
