Talk Title: Cluster based estimator for the spectral tail process
Abstract: A new type of estimator for the spectral tail process of a regularly varying time series is introduced. The approach is based on the time change formula and a equivalent characterizing invariance property of the spectral tail process introduced by . Using a projection technique, this property is fully exploited to define the new estimator. We state uniform asymptotic normality of this projection based estimator using sliding blocks limit theory of . Results of a simulation study illustrate that the new procedure provides a more stable performance than previously proposed estimators. In particular, the new estimator often has a smaller variance. This talk is based on joint work with Holger Drees and Anja Janßen . References:  Drees, H., Janßen, A. and Neblung, S.
