  • Let X be a random vector with distribution μ on ℝd and Φ be a mapping from ℝd to ℝ. That mapping acts as a black box, e.g., the result from some computer experiments for which no analytical expression is available. This paper presents an efficient algorithm to estimate a tail probability given a quantile or a quantile given a tail probability. The algorithm improves upon existing multilevel splitting methods and can be analyzed using Poisson process tools that lead to exact description of the… CONTINUE READING
