Abstract

This paper defines two distribution free goodness-of-fit test statistics for copulas and statestheir asymptotic distributions under some composite parametric assumptions. The results arestated formally in an independent identically distributed framework, and partially in timedependentframeworks. We provide a simulation study and an empirical example by studyingthe dependency between several couples of equity indices.
