On a relationship between randomly and non-randomly thresholded empirical average excesses for heavy tails (2019)
Journal Article
Stupfler, G. (in press). On a relationship between randomly and non-randomly thresholded empirical average excesses for heavy tails. Extremes,

Motivated by theoretical similarities between the classical Hill estimator of the tail index of a heavy-tailed distribution and one of its pseudo-estimator versions featuring a non-random threshold, we show a novel asymptotic representation of a clas... Read More
