Tuesday, July 19

Morning Lectures  
9’00 – 12’00 a.m.
Motivations: practical usefulness of copulas (examples). Introduction: definition, basic features, Sklar's Theorem and its inversion. Special copulas: Fréchet-Hoeffding bounds, Survival copulas, Archimedean copulas, Archimedean Alpha- and Beta-families; Asymmetry and exchangeability. Measures of Association: bivariate Kendall's Tau, Spearman's Rho, Blamqvist's Beta; generalization to the multivariate case; Pickand's dependence function. Dependence and conditioning: copulas and conditional probabilities; conditional mixtures; Invariance properties of copulas; Probability Integral Transform and simulation; copulas and derived distributions. Multivariate Return Periods: level layers: sub-, super-, and critical events; Multivariate Kendall's measure; event-based Multivariate Return Period; Multivariate Kendall's Return Period; calculation of most likely critical Multivariate design events.
Instructor: Gianfausto Salvadori
