Description

Computes estimates of a small exceedance probability P(X>q) or large return period 1/P(X>q) using the generalised Hill estimates for the EVI.

ProbGH(data, gamma, q, plot = FALSE, add = FALSE, 
       main = "Estimates of small exceedance probability", ...)

ReturnGH(data, gamma, q, plot = FALSE, add = FALSE, 
         main = "Estimates of large return period", ...)

Arguments

data

Vector of n observations.

gamma

Vector of n-2 estimates for the EVI obtained from genHill.

q

The used large quantile (we estimate P(X>q) or 1/P(X>q) for q large).

plot

Logical indicating if the estimates should be plotted as a function of k, default is FALSE.

add

Logical indicating if the estimates should be added to an existing plot, default is FALSE.

main

Title for the plot, default is "Estimates of small exceedance probability" for ProbGH and "Estimates of large return period" for ReturnGH.

...

Additional arguments for the plot function, see plot for more details.

Details

See Section 4.2.2 of Albrecher et al. (2017) for more details.

Value

A list with following components:

k

Vector of the values of the tail parameter k.

P

Vector of the corresponding probability estimates, only returned for ProbGH.

R

Vector of the corresponding estimates for the return period, only returned for ReturnGH.

q

The used large quantile.
