Heavy rainfall distributional modeling is essential in any impact studies linked to the water cycle, e.g.\ flood risks. Still, statistical analyses that both take into account the temporal and multivariate nature of extreme rainfall are rare, and often, a complex de-clustering step is needed to make extreme rainfall temporally independent. A natura...

First, we complement the case study of heavy rainfall in France by implementing Pareto-based methods using declustering techniques. Second, we develop on the asymptotic theory of the stable sums method. To prove Theorem 6.1, we give a more general statement and prove the multivariate central limit theory of regularly varying time series with unit (...

We build a sharp approximation of the whole distribution of the sum of iid heavy-tailed random vectors, combining mean and extreme behaviors. It extends the so-called 'normex' approach from a univariate to a multivariate framework. We propose two possible multinormex distributions, named d-Normex and MRV-Normex. Both rely on the Gaussian distributi...

We consider multivariate stationary processes $(\boldsymbol{X}_t)$ satisfying a stochastic recurrence equation of the form$$ \boldsymbol{X}_t= \boldsymbol{m}M_t \boldsymbol{X}_{t-1} + \boldsymbol{Q}_t,$$where $(M_t)$ and $(\boldsymbol{Q}_t)$ are iid random variables and random vectors, respectively, and $\boldsymbol{m}=\mathrm{diag}(m_1, \dots, m_d...

In multivariate extreme value theory (MEVT), the focus is on analysis outside of the observable sampling zone, which implies that the region of interest is associated to high risk levels. This work provides tools to include directional notions into the MEVT, giving the opportunity to characterize the recently introduced directional multivariate qua...

Abstract. We study an iterated temporal and contemporaneous aggregation of N independent copies of a strongly stationary subcritical Galton–Watson branching process with regularly varying immigration having index α ∈ (0 , 2). We show that limits of finite-dimensional distributions of appropriately centered and scaled aggregated partial-sum processe...

In this paper we consider a stochastic model of perpetuity-type. In contrast to the classical affine perpetuity model of Kesten [12] and Goldie [8] all discount factors in the model are mutually independent. We prove that the tails of the distribution of this model are regularly varying both in the univariate and multivariate cases. Due to the addi...

When assessing risks on a finite-time horizon, the problem can often be reduced to the study of a random sequence C(N) = (C 1 ,. .. , C N) of random length N , where C(N) comes from the product of a matrix A(N) of random size N × N and a random sequence X(N) of random length N. Our aim is to build a regular variation framework for such random seque...
