Description

This function compute mean of order p (MOP) basic statistic for the extreme value index (EVI), which is indeed a simple generalisation of the Hill estimator.

Usage

1
mop(x, k, p, method = c("MOP", "RBMOP"))

Arguments

x

Data vector.

k

a vector of number of upper order statistics.

p

a vector of mean order.

method

Method used, ("MOP", default) and reduced-bias MOP ("RBMOP").

Details

Basic statistics for the EVI estimation, the MOP of U_{ik}, where U_{ik}= \frac{X_{n-i+1:n}}{X_{n-k:n}} and X_{i:n} are order statistics, is

A(k)= ( \frac{1}{k} ∑^k_{i=1} U^p_{ik} )^{1/p},

for p \neq 0.

The new class of MOP EVI- estimators is

H_p(k)= (1 - A^{-p}(k))/p,

for p \neq 0. At p=0 the above MOP estimator is equal to classical Hill estimator.

Reduced bias MOP EVI-estimators is

RBA(k)=H_p(k) (1- \frac{β (1-p H_p(k) )}{1-ρ-p H_p(k)} (\frac{n}{k})^ρ ).

Value

a matrix of EVI estimates, corresponds to k row and p columns. When Method = "RBMOP" shape and scale second order parameters estimates are also returned.
