extremal.index.sliding.blocks {envoutliers} | R Documentation |
Estimation of an extremal index using the sliding blocks estimator suggested in (Northrop, 2015).
The function is called by KRDetect.outliers.EV
and is not intended for use by regular users of the package.
extremal.index.sliding.blocks(x, b = round(sqrt(length(x))))
x |
a numeric vector of observations. |
b |
a numeric value giving the length of blocks. Default is |
This function computes the sliding blocks estimate of extremal index suggested in (Northrop, 2015).
The function is exported for developer use only. It does not perform any checks on inputs since it is only convenience function used within KRDetect.outliers.EV
.
