In this study, we show an application of Archimedean copulas for meteorological data, which may be of interest in its own right. Hence we take monthly lowest and highest air temperature records from 1951 to 2005 in Tehran, and then investigate a suitable family of Archimedean copulas to fit this data. Also characterize the interval of suitable, and also the best copula parameter. Moreover basic properties of Archimedean copulas will be presented.

    We propose a new archimedean copula model for bivariate survival data that is motivated by Dabrowska's (1988) measure of association. The model can represent negatively correlated or moderately positively correlated data but not highly positively correlated data. Local and global measures of...

    The potential of a copula model for the description of the joint probability distribution of two agricultural drought characteristics, the relative onset RO and the relative severity RS, is investigated in Perugia (Central Italy) in reference to a sunflower crop. The 1924-2009 time series of...

    For identically distributed random variables X and Y with joint distribution function H, we show that the supremum of |H(x,y) - H(y,x)| is 1/3. Using copulas, we define a measure of nonexchangeability, and study maximally nonexchangeable random variables and copulas. In particular, we show that...

    A multivariate measure of local dependence written in terms of copulas is proposed, which if integrated, coincides with a population version of a multivariate global measure of Spearman's rho. We propose nonparametric estimators of this measure for independent sample data and also for time...

    Copula method is discovered to become a useful method to joint two distributions and is known as dependence functions. It is a multivariate distribution functions whose one-dimensional margins are uniform on the interval (0, 1). The used of copula has expanded in many fields of study. Copula has...

    We introduce a copula estimator based on wavelet smoothing of empirical copulas for the case of time series data. We then study the properties of this estimator via simulations and compare its performance with other estimators. Applications to real data are also given.
