Inference for clusters of extreme values
AbstractInference for clusters of extreme values of a time series typically requires the identification of independent clusters of exceedances over a high threshold. The choice of declustering scheme often has a significant effect on estimates of cluster characteristics. We propose an automatic declustering scheme that is justified by an asymptotic result for the times between threshold exceedances. The scheme relies on the extremal index, which we show may be estimated before declustering, and supports a bootstrap procedure for assessing the variability of estimates.
