Tail dependence in bivariate skew-Normal and skew-t distributions

  title={Tail dependence in bivariate skew-Normal and skew-t distributions},
  author={Paola Bortot},
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…

Tail dependence convergence rate of a skew-t and of a skew normal distribution
We first examine the rate of decay to the limit of the lower tail dependence function i.e. the asymptotic tail dependence coefficient of a bivariate skew-t distribution. It is important to consider

Tail dependence of skew t-copulas
It is shown that depending on skewing parameter values, the Tail dependence coefficient can differ considerably from the tail dependence of the t-copula.
Models for Extremal Dependence Derived from Skew‐symmetric Families
Skew‐symmetric families of distributions such as the skew‐normal and skew‐t represent supersets of the normal and t distributions, and they exhibit richer classes of extremal behaviour. By defining a
Behaviour of multivariate tail dependence coefficients
In applications tail dependence is an important property of a copula. Bivariate tail dependence is investigated in many papers, but multivariate tail dependence has not been studied widely. We define
Tail dependence for two skew slash distributions
Coefficient of tail dependence measures the dependencies between extreme values. In this paper, the upper tail dependence coefficients of two classes of skew slash distributions are derived. The

Statistical applications of the multivariate skew normal distribution
Azzalini and Dalla Valle have recently discussed the multivariate skew normal distribution which extends the class of normal distributions by the addition of a shape parameter. The first part of the
The Skew‐normal Distribution and Related Multivariate Families *
Abstract.  This paper provides an introductory overview of a portion of distribution theory which is currently under intense development. The starting point of this topic has been the so‐called
Distributions generated by perturbation of symmetry with emphasis on a multivariate skew t‐distribution
Summary. A fairly general procedure is studied to perturb a multivariate density satisfying a weak form of multivariate symmetry, and to generate a whole set of non‐symmetric densities. The approach
Statistics for near independence in multivariate extreme values
We propose a multivariate extreme value threshold model for joint tail estimation which overcomes the problems encountered with existing techniques when the variables are near independence. We
The t copula and related copulas
The Gaussian mixture representation of a multivariate t distribution is used as a starting point to construct two new copulas, the skewed t copula and the grouped tCopula, which allow more heterogeneity in the modelling of dependent observations.
Modelling Dependence within Joint Tail Regions
Standard approaches for modelling dependence within joint tail regions are based on extreme value methods which assume max‐stability, a particular form of joint tail dependence. We develop joint tail
A conditional approach for multivariate extreme values (with discussion)
Summary.  Multivariate extreme value theory and methods concern the characterization, estimation and extrapolation of the joint tail of the distribution of a d‐dimensional random variable. Existing
Modelling heavy tails and skewness in film returns
The average of box-office revenue is dominated by extreme outcomes, with most films earning little and most revenues flowing to a few blockbusters. In this paper the skewness and heavy tails of film
The multivariate Gaussian tail model: an application to oceanographic data
Optimal design of sea‐walls requires the extreme value analysis of a variety of oceanographic data. Asymptotic arguments suggest the use of multivariate extreme value models, but empirical studies
