Extreme residual dependence for random vectors and processes
A two-dimensional random vector in the domain of attraction of an extreme value distribution G is said to be asymptotically independent (i.e. in the tail) if G is the product of its marginal distribution functions. Ledford and Tawn (1996) discussed a form of residual dependence in this case. In this paper we give a characterization of this phenomenon (see also Ramos and Ledford (2009)), and offer extensions to higher-dimensional spaces and stochastic processes. Systemic risk in the banking system is treated in a similar framework.
