Estimates the covariance matrix for the Smith's model

Description

Estimates the covariance matrix for the Smith's model using non-parametric estimates of the pairwise extremal coefficients.

Usage

1
2
fitcovmat(data, coord, marge = "emp", iso = FALSE, control = list(),
..., start, weighted = TRUE)

Arguments

data

A matrix representing the data. Each column corresponds to one location.

coord

A matrix that gives the coordinates of each location. Each row corresponds to one location.

marge

Character string specifying how margins are transformed to unit Frechet. Must be one of "emp", "frech" or "mle" - see function fitextcoeff.

iso

Logical. If TRUE, isotropy is supposed. Otherwise (default), anisotropy is allowed.

control

The control arguments to be passed to the optim function.

...

Optional arguments to be passed to the optim function.

start

A named list giving the initial values for the parameters over which the weighted sum of square is to be minimized. If start is omitted the routine attempts to find good starting values.

weighted

Logical. Should weighted least squares be used?

Details

The fitting procedure is based on weighted least squares. More precisely, the fitting criteria is to minimize:

∑_{i,j} [(θ_{i,j}^+ - θ_{i,j}^*) / s_{i,j}]^2

where θ_{i,j}^+ is a non parametric estimate of the extremal coefficient related to location i and j, θ_{i,j}^* is the fitted extremal coefficient derived from the Smith's model and s_{i,j} are the standard errors related to the estimates θ_{i,j}^+.

Value

An object of class maxstab.
