Description

Computes estimates of large quantiles Q(1-p) using the estimates for the EVI obtained from the Hill estimator adapted for right censoring.

Usage

1
2
cQuant(data, censored, gamma1, p, plot = FALSE, add = FALSE, 
       main = "Estimates of extreme quantile", ...)

Arguments

data

Vector of n observations.

censored

A logical vector of length n indicating if an observation is censored.

gamma1

Vector of n-1 estimates for the EVI obtained from cHill.

p

The exceedance probability of the quantile (we estimate Q(1-p) for p small).

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 extreme quantile".

...

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

Details

The quantile is estimated as

\hat{Q}(1-p)=Z_{n-k,n} \times ( (1-km)/p)^{H_{k,n}^c}

with Z_{i,n} the i-th order statistic of the data, H_{k,n}^c the Hill estimator adapted for right censoring and km the Kaplan-Meier estimator for the CDF evaluated in Z_{n-k,n}.

Value

A list with following components:

k

Vector of the values of the tail parameter k.

Q

Vector of the corresponding quantile estimates.

p

The used exceedance probability.
