# evTestC: Large-sample Test of Multivariate Extreme-Value Dependence In copula: Multivariate Dependence with Copulas

 evTestC R Documentation

## Large-sample Test of Multivariate Extreme-Value Dependence

### Description

Test of multivariate extreme-value dependence based on the empirical copula and max-stability. The test statistics are defined in the second reference. Approximate p-values for the test statistics are obtained by means of a multiplier technique.

### Usage

```evTestC(x, N = 1000)
```

### Arguments

 `x` a data matrix that will be transformed to pseudo-observations. `N` number of multiplier iterations to be used to simulate realizations of the test statistic under the null hypothesis.

### Details

More details are available in the second reference. See also Remillard and Scaillet (2009).

### Value

An object of `class` `htest` which is a list, some of the components of which are

 `statistic` value of the test statistic. `p.value` corresponding approximate p-value.

### Note

This test was derived under the assumption of continuous margins, which implies that ties occur with probability zero. The presence of ties in the data might substantially affect the approximate p-value.

### Examples

```## Do these data come from an extreme-value copula?
evTestC(rCopula(200, gumbelCopula(3)))
evTestC(rCopula(200, claytonCopula(3)))

## Three-dimensional examples
evTestC(rCopula(200, gumbelCopula(3, dim=3)))
evTestC(rCopula(200, claytonCopula(3, dim=3)))
