frechetdat {BMAmevt}R Documentation

Multivariate data set with margins following unit Frechet distribution.


Five-variate dataset which margins follow unit-Frechet distributions, obtained from winterdat by probability integral transform. Marginal estimation was performed by maximum likelihood estimation of a Generalized Pareto distribution over marginal thresholds corresponding to 0.7 quantiles, following Cooley (see reference below). The “non extreme” part of the marginal distributions was approximated by the empirical distribution function.
