threshr: threshr: Threshold Selection and Uncertainty for Extreme...

Description Details References See Also


Provides functions for the selection of extreme value threshold. At the moment only the simplest case, where the data can be treated as independent identically distributed observations, is considered. Future releases will tackle more general situations. See the 'threshr' website for more information, documentation and examples.


The main function in the threshr package is ithresh, which uses leave-one-out cross-validation in a Bayesian setup to compare the predictive ability resulting from the use of each of a user-supplied set of thresholds.

See vignette("threshr-vignette", package = "threshr") for an overview of the package.
