View source: R/otherPORTq.R

Description

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

Usage

1
otherPORT.q(x, k, q1, q2, method = c("MO", "GH", "MM"))

Arguments

x

Data vector.

k

a vector of number of upper order statistics.

q1

quantile for PORT.

q2

quantile level.

method

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

Details

The computation of high quantile estimate is based on the method by Weissman (1978) and the EVI estimators are given in Dekkers et al. (1989), Beirlant et al. (1996) and Fraga Alves et al. (2009).

Value

a k dimensional vector of PORT EVI and high quantil estimates.
