  • Quantifying dependence between extreme values is a central problem in many theoretical and applied studies. The main distinction is between asymptotically independent and asymptotically dependent extremes, with important theoretical examples of these general limiting classes being the extremal behaviour of a bivariate Normal distribution, for asymptotic independence, and of the bivariate t distribution, for asymptotic dependence. In this paper we study the tail dependence of skewed extensions… CONTINUE READING
