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

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


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

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

Bounding the Rates of Convergence Towards the Extreme Value Distributions

Approximate Computation of Expectations: the Canonical Stein Operator

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

Uniform rates of convergence in extreme-value theory

Rates of convergence are derived for the convergence in distribution of renormalised sample maxima to the appropriate extreme-value distribution. Related questions which are discussed include the

Normal Approximation by Stein ’ s Method

The aim of this paper is to give an overview of Stein’s method, which has turned out to be a powerful tool for estimating the error in normal, Poisson and other approximations, especially for sums of

Stein’s density approach and information inequalities

A new perspective on Stein's so-called density approach is provided by introducing a new operator and characterizing class which are valid for a much wider family of probability distributions on the real line and proposing a new Stein identity which is used to derive information inequalities in terms of the "generalized Fisher information distance".

Use of exchangeable pairs in the analysis of simulations

The method of exchangeable pairs has emerged as an important tool in proving limit theorems for Poisson, normal and other classical approx- imations. Here the method is used in a simulation context.

An Introduction to Stein's Method

A common theme in probability theory is the approximation of complicated probability distributions by simpler ones, the central limit theorem being a classical example. Stein's method is a tool which
