# Single-index models for extreme value index regression

@inproceedings{Yoshida2022SingleindexMF, title={Single-index models for extreme value index regression}, author={Takuma Yoshida}, year={2022} }

Since the extreme value index (EVI) controls the tail behaviour of the distribution function, the estimation of EVI is a very important topic in extreme value theory. Recent developments in the estimation of EVI along with covariates have been in the context of nonparametric regression. However, for the large dimension of covariates, the fully nonparametric estimator faces the problem of the curse of dimensionality. To avoid this, we apply the single index model to EVI regression under Pareto…

Under mild conditions, it is shown that the simple linear quantile regression offers a consistent estimate of the index parameter vector, and the resulting estimator of the quantile function performs asymptotically as efficiently as if the true value of theindex vector were known.
