Tail dependence is a copula property, which is illustrated by the subsequent Proposition 6 Let (X1 , X2 ) be a bivariate random vector with joint distribution function F, continuous margins F1 , F2 , and implied copula CF as defined in (39). Then the following holds: (a) The coefficients of lower and upper tail dependence can be calculated by λl = lim q↓0 CF (q, q) q and λu = lim q↑1 1 − 2q + CF (q, q) . 1−q (b) If in addition F1 , F2 are strictly increasing, λl and λu can be obtained by λl = lim P X2 ≤ F2−1 (q) | X1 = F1−1 (q) + lim P X1 ≤ F1−1 (q) | X2 = F2−1 (q) , q↓0 q↓0 λu = lim P X2 > q↑1 F2−1 (q) | X1 = F1−1 (q) + lim P X1 > F1−1 (q) | X2 = F2−1 (q) .
Again, parametrizations with δ = 0, α = 0 or β, Δβ = α have to be understood as limiting cases. Note that the above definition of multivariate GH distributions as normal meanvariance mixtures of the form Nd (μ + yΔβ, yΔ) ◦ G is of course equivalent to ˜ yΔ) ◦ G used above because the d × d-matrix Δ is the representation Nd (μ + yβ, always regular by assumption. The modification of the mean term just simplifies some formulas as we shall see below. For notational consistency with Sect. 2, the term GHd (λ, α, β, δ, μ, Δ) will be reserved for multivariate GH distributions with β, μ ∈ Rd , whereas GH(λ, α, β, δ, μ) denotes a univariate GH distribution with β, μ ∈ R as before.
Apart from being inherent in every multivariate distribution, the importance of copulas relies on the fact that they encode the dependencies between the margins Fi of F. 14]). Thus the assertion of Sklar’s Theorem might alternatively be stated in the following way: Every multivariate distribution can be split up into two parts, the marginal distributions and the dependence structure. The next proposition shows that copulas and hence all dependence measures that can be derived from them are invariant under strictly increasing transformations of the margins.
