RobExtremes: Optimally Robust Estimation for Extreme Value Distributions

Optimally robust estimation for extreme value distributions using S4 classes and methods (based on packages distr, distrEx, distrMod, RobAStBase, and ROptEst).

AuthorNataliya Horbenko [aut, cph], Bernhard Spangl [ctb] (contributed smoothed grid values of the Lagrange multipliers), Sascha Desmettre [ctb] (contributed smoothed grid values of the Lagrange multipliers), Eugen Massini [ctb] (contributed an interactive smoothing routine for smoothing the Lagrange multipliers and smoothed grid values of the Lagrange multipliers), Daria Pupashenko [ctb] (contributed MDE-estimation for GEV distribution in the framework of her PhD thesis 2011--14), Gerald Kroisandt [ctb] (contributed testing routines), Matthias Kohl [aut, cph], Peter Ruckdeschel [cre, aut, cph]
