## S3 method for class 'spm'
vcov(object, maxima = c("sliding", "disjoint"),
  estimator = "all", ...)

Arguments

object

and object of class c("spm", "exdex") returned from spm.

maxima

A character scalar specifying whether to return the estimated variance of the estimator of the extremal index θ based on sliding maxima or on disjoint maxima.

estimator

A character vector specifying which of the three variants of the semiparametric maxima estimator to use: "N2015", "BB2018" or "BB2018b". See spm for details. If estimator = "all" then the estimated variances of all variants are returned.

...

Further arguments. None are used.

Value

A 1 by 1 numeric matrix if estimator = "N2015" or "BB2018" and a vector of length 2 if estimator = "both", containing the estimated variance(s) of the estimator(s).
