Dataset clayton_data


This dataset is a simulation of 200 points from a 3-dimensional clayton copula with θ = 7, hence highly dependent, for the first, third and fourth marginals. The second marginal is added as independent uniform draws. Lastly, the third marginal is flipped, inducing a negative dependence structure.




A matrix with 200 rows and 4 columns

The example section below gives the code to re-generate this data if needed.


This dataset is studied in O. Laverny, V. Maume-Deschamps, E. Masiello and D. Rullière (2020).
