Statistics for Heteroscedastic Time Series Extremes

  title={Statistics for Heteroscedastic Time Series Extremes},
  author={Axel Bucher and Tobias Jennessen},
. Einmahl, de Haan and Zhou (2016, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B, 78(1), 31– 51) recently introduced a stochastic model that allows for heteroscedasticity of extremes. The model is extended to the situation where the observations are serially dependent, which is crucial for many practical applications. We prove a local limit theorem for a kernel estimator for the scedasis function, and a functional limit theorem for an estimator for the integrated scedasis function. We…

Quantile Spectral Processes: Asymptotic Analysis and Inference

Quantile-and copula-related spectral concepts recently have been considered by various authors. Those spectra, in their most general form, provide a full characterization of the copulas associated

Statistics of heteroscedastic extremes

We extend classical extreme value theory to non‐identically distributed observations. When the tails of the distribution are proportional much of extreme value statistics remains valid. The

Structural break tests for extremal dependence in β-mixing random vectors

We derive a structural break test for extremal dependence in β-mixing random vectors whose marginals may be (asymptotically) dependent or independent. Extant tests require independent observations

Inference on the tail process with application to financial time series modeling

Structural Breaks in Time Series

This article covers methodological issues related to estimation, testing, and computation for models involving structural changes, and focuses on the so-called off-line methods whereby one wants to retrospectively test for breaks in a given sample of data and form confidence intervals about the break dates.

Weak convergence of a pseudo maximum likelihood estimator for the extremal index

The extremes of a stationary time series typically occur in clusters. A primary measure for this phenomenon is the extremal index, representing the reciprocal of the expected cluster size. Both a

A Note on Conditional Versus Joint Unconditional Weak Convergence in Bootstrap Consistency Results

The consistency of a bootstrap or resampling scheme is classically validated by weak convergence of conditional laws. However, when working with stochastic processes in the space of bounded functions

The tail index as a measure of tail thickness provides information that is not captured by standard volatility measures. It may however change over time. Currently available procedures for detecting

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
