1 : An overview and power comparison DANIEL BERG DnB NOR Asset Management 22nd Nordic Conference on Mathematical Statistics. Vilnius, Lithuania June 2008

2 Outline Preliminaries Proposed approaches Monte Carlo simulation results and recommendations

3 Motivation Figure: Two simulated data sets - both with standard normal margins and correlation coefficient 0.7.

4 Motivation Figure: Nonzero precipitation values in two Norwegian cities and its copula.

5 Definition & Theorem Definition (Copula) A d-dimensional copula is a multivariate distribution function C with standard uniform marginal distributions. Theorem (Sklar, 1959) Let H be a joint distribution function with margins F 1,..., F d. Then there exists a copula C : [0, 1] d [0, 1] such that H(x 1,..., x d ) = C(F 1 (x 1 ),..., F d (x d )).

6 Useful results A general d-dimensional density h can be expressed, for some copula density c, as h(x 1,..., x d ) = c{f 1 (x 1 ),..., F d (x d )}f 1 (x 1 ) f d (x d ). Non-parametric estimate for F i (x i ) commonly used to transform original margins into standard uniform: u ji = F i (x ji ) = R ji n + 1, where R ji is the rank of x ji amongst x 1i,..., x ni. u ji commonly referred to as pseudo-observations and models based on non-parametric margins and parametric copulas are referred to as semi-parametric copulas

7 Preliminaries Proposed approaches H 0 : C C = {C θ ; θ Θ} vs. H 1 : C / C = {C θ ; θ Θ} Univariate Anderson-Darling or QQ-plot, Multivariate fewer alternatives Pseudo-observations no longer independent. In addition, limiting distribution of many copula GoF test depends on null hypothesis copula and parameter value p-value estimation via parametric bootstrap procedures Focus in literature almost exclusively bivariate NOT model selection! Several techniques proposed: binning, multivariate smoothing, dimension reduction

8 Preliminaries Proposed approaches Preliminaries Rosenblatt s transform: Dependent variables independent U[0, 1] variables, given multivariate distribution v = R(z) = (R 1 (z 1 ),..., R d (z d )): v 1 = R 1 (z 1 ) = F 1 (z 1 ) = z 1, v 2 = R 2 (z 2 ) = F 2 1 (z 2 z 1 ),. v d = R d (z d ) = F d 1...d (z d z 1,..., z d ). Inverse of simulation (conditional inversion) GoF: v = R(z) test v for independence d! different permutation orders

18 Test procedure Experimental setup Power comparison Monte Carlso simulations Test procedure 1) x n samples from the d-dimensional H 1 copula with θ(τ). 2) z pseudo-observations (normalized ranks) 3) ˆθ estimated parameter of the H 0 copula 4) T i test statistic i computed under the H 0 copula using ˆθ. 5) Repeat steps 1-4 M times with H 1 = H 0 and θ = ˆθ T 0 i,m 6) ˆp = 1 M M m=1 1( T 0 i,m > T i ) 7) ˆp < 5% reject H 0

19 Test procedure Experimental setup Power comparison Monte Carlso simulations Experimental setup H 0 copula (5 choices: Gaussian, Student, Clayton, Gumbel, Frank), H 1 copula (5 choices: Gaussian, Student (ν = 6), Clayton, Gumbel, Frank), Kendall s tau (2 choices: τ = {0.2, 0.4}), Dimension (3 choices: d = {2, 4, 8}), Sample size (2 choices: n = {100, 500}) Student only considered as null in bivariate case. For each of these 240 cases, 10, 000 repetitions size/power

25 and recommendations Nominal levels all match prescribed size of 5% Power generally increases with dimension, sample size and dependence Clayton > Gumbel > Frank > Gaussian > Student (>: easier to test) No universally most powerful approach, but A 2, A 4 and A (b) 9 perform very well in most cases A (b) 9 is recommended in general, with special case exceptions: For testing the Gaussian copula, if trying to detect heavy tails for d > 2 and large n then A 1 very powerful For testing the Clayton copula the generalized Shih s test is most powerful Permutational variation of little concern for approaches based on Rosenblatt s transform (see Berg (2007))
