Functions for Extreme Value Mixture Modelling, Threshold Estimation and Boundary Corrected Kernel Density Estimation


Package: evmix
Type: Package
Version: 0.2-7

License: GPL-3
LazyLoad: yes

The usual distribution functions, maximum likelihood inference and model diagnostics for univariate stationary extreme value mixture models are provided.

Kernel density estimation including various boundary corrected kernel density estimation methods and a wide choice of kernels, with cross-validation likelihood based bandwidth estimators are included.

Reasonable consistency with the base functions in the evd package is provided, so that users can safely interchange most code.
