1 Plot Liebscher copula

The example we consider is \[ \mathbf{U}=(\mathrm{max}\{U_{11}^2, U_{21}^2\},\ \mathrm{max}\{U_{12}^2, U_{22}^2\})\sim C\quad\text{for}\quad C(u_1,u_2) = C_1(\sqrt{u_1},\sqrt{u_2}) C_2(\sqrt{u_1},\sqrt{u_2}). \]

General example setup

n <- 2000
set.seed(271)
## Define copula/df of U1
## lambda_l = 2^{-1/th}; th = 2^{-(1-tau)/(2*tau)}
family <- "Clayton"
th <- 4
copU1 <- onacopulaL(family, nacList=list(th, 1:2))
U1 <- rCopula(n, copula=copU1)
lambda1 <- copClayton@lambdaL(th)

## Define copula/df of U2
## lambda_l = 2*t_{n+1}(-sqrt(nu+1)*sqrt(1-th)/sqrt(1+th)); th = sin((pi/2) * tau)
family <- "t" # copula family
nu <- 3 # degrees of freedom
th <- 0.8 # parameter
copU2 <- ellipCopula(family, param=th, dim=2, df=nu) # define copula object
U2 <- rCopula(n, copula=copU2)
lambda2 <- 2*pt(-sqrt(nu+1)*sqrt(1-th)/sqrt(1+th), df=nu+1) # = 2t_4(-2/3)

## Sample a survival MO copula (U3)
alpha <- c(2^(-3/4), 0.8) # ~= 0.6, 0.8
U <- matrix(runif(3*n), ncol=3) # U'_1, U'_2, U'_12
U3 <- 1 - cbind(pmax(U[,1]^(1/(1-alpha[1])), U[,3]^(1/alpha[1])),
                pmax(U[,2]^(1/(1-alpha[2])), U[,3]^(1/alpha[2])))
lambda3 <- min(alpha) # lambda_l > 0, lambda_u = 0

## Define U
U <- cbind(pmax(U1[,1], U2[,1]), pmax(U1[,2], U2[,2]))^2 # Liebscher based on C, t3
U. <- cbind(pmax(U1[,1], U3[,1]), pmax(U1[,2], U3[,2]))^2 # Liebscher based on C, survival MO
## => off-diagonal entry of Lambda(_l) is:
(lambda <- lambda1*lambda2) # 2^(-1/4) * 2 * pt(-2/3, df=4) ~= 0.4553
## [1] 0.45532
(lambda. <- lambda1*lambda3) # 2^(-1/4) * 2^(-3/4) = 1/2
## [1] 0.5
