VineCopula-package: Statistical Inference of Vine Copulas

Description Details Remark References

Description

Provides tools for the statistical analysis of vine copula models. The package includes tools for parameter estimation, model selection, simulation, goodness-of-fit tests, and visualization. Tools for estimation, selection and exploratory data analysis of bivariate copula models are also provided.

Details

Vine copulas are a flexible class of dependence models consisting of bivariate building blocks (see e.g., Aas et al., 2009). This package is primarily made for the statistical analysis of vine copula models. The package includes tools for parameter estimation, model selection, simulation, goodness-of-fit tests, and visualization. Tools for estimation, selection and exploratory data analysis of bivariate copula models are also provided.

The DESCRIPTION file: This package was not yet installed at build time.

Remark

The package VineCopula is a continuation of the package CDVine by U. Schepsmeier and E. C. Brechmann (see Brechmann and Schepsmeier (2013)). It includes all functions implemented in CDVine for the bivariate case (BiCop-functions).
