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 ddimensional 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 ddimensional 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 ). Nonparametric 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 pseudoobservations and models based on nonparametric margins and parametric copulas are referred to as semiparametric copulas
7 Preliminaries Proposed approaches H 0 : C C = {C θ ; θ Θ} vs. H 1 : C / C = {C θ ; θ Θ} Univariate AndersonDarling or QQplot, Multivariate fewer alternatives Pseudoobservations no longer independent. In addition, limiting distribution of many copula GoF test depends on null hypothesis copula and parameter value pvalue 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 ddimensional H 1 copula with θ(τ). 2) z pseudoobservations (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 14 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))
