The package provides a methodology simple and trustworthy for the analysis of extreme values. The package contains functions for visualizing, fitting and validating the distribution of tails. Moreover, it also provides multiple threshold tests for a generalized Pareto distribution, together with an automatic threshold selection algorithm.
