Measures of multivariate asymptotic dependence and their relation to spectral expansions
Asymptotic dependence can be interpreted as the property that realizations of the single components of a random vector occur simultaneously with a high probability. Information about the asymptotic dependence structure can be captured by dependence measures like the tail dependence parameter or the residual dependence index. We introduce these measures in the bivariate framework and extend them to the multivariate case afterwards. Within the extreme value theory one can model asymptotic dependence structures by Pickands dependence functions and spectral expansions. Both in the bivariate and in the multivariate case we also compute the tail dependence parameter and the residual dependence index on the basis of this statistical model. They take a specific shape then and are related to the Pickands dependence function and the exponent of variation of the underlying density expansion. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
