`xdat` |
a numeric vector of data to be fitted. |

`model` |
string specifying whether the univariate or bivariate diagnostic should be used. Either |

`u` |
optional; vector of candidate thresholds. |

`k` |
number of thresholds to consider (if |

`q1` |
lowest quantile for the threshold sequence. |

`q2` |
upper quantile limit for the threshold sequence ( |

`par` |
parameters of the NHPP likelihood. If |

`M` |
number of superpositions or 'blocks' / 'years' the process corresponds to (can affect the optimization) |

`nbs` |
number of simulations used to assess the null distribution of the LRT, and produce the p-value |

`alpha` |
significance level of the LRT |

`plots` |
vector of strings indicating which plots to produce; |

`UseQuantiles` |
logical; use quantiles as the thresholds in the plot? |

`changepar` |
logical; if |

`...` |
additional parameters passed to |

The function is a wrapper for the univariate (non-homogeneous Poisson process model) and bivariate exponential dependence model.
For the latter, the user can select either the rate or inverse rate parameter (the inverse rate parametrization works better for uniformity
of the p-value distribution under the `LR`

test.

There are two options for the bivariate diagnostic: either provide pairwise minimum of marginally
exponentially distributed margins or provide a `n`

times 2 matrix with the original data, which
is transformed to exponential margins using the empirical distribution function.
