kgvar: K-Geometric Means Algorithm for Value-at-Risk

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/kgvar.R

Description

This function performs k-geometric means for time-varying value-at-risk.

Usage

1
  kgvar(y, centers, iter.max = 10, conf.level = 0.95)

Arguments

y

data frame from which the estimate is to be computed; first column corresponds to time and the second to the remainder of interest.

centers

the number of clusters or a set of initial (distinct) cluster centres. If a number, a random set of (distinct) rows in y is chosen as the initial centers.

iter.max

the maximum number of iterations allowed. The default is 10.

conf.level

the confidence level. The default is 0.95.

Details

The intermediate sequence ╬║_T is chosen proportional to T/\log T.

Value

kgvar returns an object of class "kgvar" which has a fitted method. It is a list with at least the following components:

var.new

cluster center value-at-risk function.

clusters

cluster allocation.

Y

raw data.

n.clust

number of clusters.

scale.param

the scale parameters in the Pareto-like tail specification.

conf.level

the confidence level.

hill

hill estimator of extreme value index.

The plot method depicts the k-geometric means algorithm for time-varying value-at-risk. If c.c is TRUE, the method displays the cluster means.
