Special-Purpose Software: potMax Analysis
|Introduction - potMax||
R is a
general purpose software environment for statistical computing and
graphics that is widely used in the statistical community.
The R package potMax provides an estimation procedure for the
distribution of the peak (maximum) value of a stationary, but
otherwise fairly general, time series. It may also be used to
calculate return values. The model that forms the basis of this
procedure is a two dimensional Poisson process that is appropriate,
in an asymptotic sense, for modeling the extremes of a random
process. One dimension of the Poisson process is time since the
target data sets are time series. An example of the second
dimension is the pressure exerted by wind on a scale model of a
building in a wind tunnel. The motivation for this R package are
such time series, and all the data sets provided with this package
are examples of wind tunnel data.
The methodology behind this package is discussed in the following paper
