public class ACERAnalysis extends Object
This algorithm works as follows:
Another wellknown estimation method is Peaks Over Threshold (POT). POT method assumes independence among extreme events, and therefore always requires declustering and dropping other nonpeak data. This is considered to be wasteful. On the other hand, ACER method accounts for Markovlike dependence (i.e., kstep memory) in time series (with k=1 as a special case for event independence). That is, a threshold exceedance is considered as an occurrence if the previous (k1) points are below the threshold. Experiments show that k=2 (i.e., conditional on one previous nonexceedance) is accurate enough for estimation for a wide range of data.
The R equivalent function is acer::acer.analysis
