View source: R/exi-fit.R

Description

Estimation of the extremal index using interexceedance times.

Usage

1
fitexi(data, threshold)

Arguments

data

A matrix with two columns: obs for the observations and time for the time.

threshold

The threshold.

Details

The extremal index estimator proposed by Ferro and Segers (2003) is based on interexceedance times. In particular, it does not require a specific declusterization of the time series.

The tim.cond gives an “automatic” procedure to decluster the time series without any subjective choice to define the independence condition between clusters.

Value

This function returns a list with two components. The first one exi gives the estimate of the extremal index; while the second, tim.cond gives the time condition for independence between events to be passed to the clust function.

n.obs <- 500
x <- rexp(n.obs + 1)
y <- pmax(x[-1], x[-(n.obs + 1)])## The extremal index is 0.5

u <- quantile(y, 0.95)
fitexi(y, u)
