Extreme behavior of bivariate elliptical distributions

Asimit, A.V. & Jones, B. (2007). Extreme behavior of bivariate elliptical distributions. Insurance: Mathematics and Economics, 41(1), pp. 53-61. doi: 10.1016/j.insmatheco.2006.09.002


This paper exploits a stochastic representation of bivariate elliptical distributions in order to obtain asymptotic results which are determined by the tail behavior of the generator. Under certain specified assumptions, we present the limiting distribution of componentwise maxima, the limiting upper copula, and a bivariate version of the classical peaks over threshold result.
