This foreshadowed the use of the parameter ???? as the “extremal index” (EI) under weaker conditions than strong mixing. d. assumptions and under stationarity. 5 WEAK DISTRIBUTIONAL MIXING FOR EVT, D(un ), EXTREMAL INDEX In attempting to weaken the strong mixing condition for EVT, one notes that the events of interest for extremes are typically those of the form {????i ⩽ u} or their finite intersections. For example, the event {Mn ⩽ u} is just ∩ni=1 {????i ⩽ u}. Hence it is natural to attempt to restrict the events A and B in strong mixing to have the form A = {Xi ⩽ u, i = i1 , … , ip }, B = {Xj ⩽ u, j = j1 , … , jq } where the i indices are separated by some ???? from the j’s.

But in two dimensions there is no natural ordering of the pairs of points and so no natural definition of past and future. One can of course limit dependence between X(s, t) in regions separated by large distances, but this is far too restrictive and can require the terms X(s1 , t1 ), X(s2 , t2 ) to be almost independent for different (s, t) points. A promising approach is to not seek a single condition based on some measure of separation of two sets but rather require a “D(un )” type of condition applied sequentially in each coordinate direction, taking advantage of each past–future structure.

Such markets present episodes of extreme volatility rarely observed in equity markets, which make trading and hedging challenging issues. The authors show that EVT can then be a very useful tool in risk management. Stefan Straetmans (Maastricht University) and Thanh Thi Huyen Dinh (Group de Lage Landen), in their chapter “Comparing Tail Risk and Systemic Risk Profiles for Different Types of US Financial Institutions,” use EVT to propose innovative ways to measure risk in the banking sector. While risk is usually measured by variance or covariance, Stefan and Thanh use tail VaR to measure individual bank risk and a measure of extreme systematic risk (tail ????) to capture systemic risk.
