Fitting Tails by the Empirical Residual Coefficient of Variation

Provides a methodology simple and trustworthy for the analysis of extreme values and multiple threshold tests for a generalized Pareto distribution, together with an automatic threshold selection algorithm. See del Castillo, J, Daoudi, J and Lockhart, R (2014) <doi:10.1111/sjos.12037>.
