Produces a diagnostic plot to assist with threshold choice for bivariate data.
A matrix or data frame, ordinarily with two columns, which may contain missing values.
Other arguments to be passed to the plotting function.
FALSE (the default), produces a threshold
choice plot as illustrated in Beirlant et al. (2004). With n
non-missing bivariate observations, the integers
k = 1,...,n-1 are plotted against the values
(k/n)r_(n-k), where r_(n-k)
is the (n-k)th order statistic of the sum of the margins
following empirical transformation to standard Frechet.
A vertical line is drawn at
k0 is the largest
integer for which the y-axis is above the value two. If
FALSE, the largest
k0 data points are used to plot an
estimate of the spectal measure H([0, w]) versus w.
A list is invisibly returned giving
k0 and the values used to
produce the plot.
