Conditional Extremal Analysis


In this chapter we provide an overview of the conditioning concept including some theoretical applications. After some heuristic arguments and technical preparations in Section 8.1. we study conditional extremes in a nonparametric and, respectively, in a parametric framework, see Sections 8.2 and 8.3.
