Estimation of the coefficient of tail dependence in bivariate extremes
Statistics & Probability Letters, 1999, vol. 43, issue 4, 399-409
In this paper we shall give an alternative derivation of the coefficient of tail dependence introduced by Ledford and Tawn [1996, Biometrika 83, 169-187] and propose a consistent estimator, which is asymptotically normal.
