Description

This function computes high quantile or value-at-risk (VaR) estimate based on moment (MO), generalized Hill (GH) and mixed moment (MM) extreme value index (EVI) estimates.

Usage

1
other.q(x, k, q, method = c("MO", "GH", "MM"))

Arguments

x

Data vector.

k

a vector of number of upper order statistics.

q

quantile level.

method

Method used, moment estimate("MO", default), generalized Hill ("GH") and mixed moment ("MM").

Details

The computation of estimate of high quantile or VaR is based on moment, generalized Hill and mixed moment EVI estimators and the computation of EVI estimators are related to the work by Dekkers et al. (1989), Beirlant et al. (1996) and Fraga Alves et al. (2009).

Value

a k dimensional vector of EVI and high quantile estimates.
