# Pareto distribution

(redirected from Generalized Pareto Distribution)

## Pareto distribution

the tendency for a small proportion of the number of objects or items being considered to account for a large proportion of the feature under examination. More crudely, the Pareto ‘law’ suggests that 20% of items account for 80% of the total amount of stock or sales or whatever. In the case of stock, the Pareto law implies that a small proportion of the total number of items stocked accounts for a large proportion of the total value of stock held.

The business significance of the Pareto distribution is that if management devotes the greater part of its time to controlling the most important 20% of the stock items held, it is, in effect, controlling a large proportion of the total value of the firm's stocks. See ABC ANALYSIS.

Therefore, motivated by the Pickands-Balkema-de Haan theorem, which states that losses that exceed a high threshold roughly follow a generalized Pareto distribution, we use a two-component spliced distribution with the log-normal distribution fitting the data in the normal range and a generalized Pareto distribution in the extreme range.
Note that the generalized Pareto distribution implies the demand functions for sellers on the platform are defined by the class of demands with constant curvature of inverse demand (6)
Analyzing these results, according to Figure 3, it is possible to state that the location parameter could be represented by a Generalized Pareto distribution scale parameter and the shape parameter could be represented by GEV distribution.
The density function can be deduced from generalized Pareto distribution and log-likelihood function [30] is expressed as

The generalized Pareto distribution in the extreme value theory has played an important role in modeling the excess distribution over a high threshold.
The defects can be solved by generalized Pareto distribution (GPD) ("as discussed by Ashkar and El Adlouni [17]").
Generalized Logistic distribution (GLO), Generalized Pareto Distribution (GPA) and Generalized Extreme Value distributions (GEV) are included in this study whose parameters are estimated by the method of L-moments and TL-moments.
They suggested that a generalized Pareto distribution (GPD) is to be fitted, with the use of the Peaks- Over-Threshold (POT) method, to a dataset of residuals from an AR-GARCH filtering process.
where k [not equal to] 0 and probability density function for the three parameters generalized Pareto distribution is
Areas for further study would include the use other ARMA-GARCH type models together with the use of a generalized Pareto distribution or a generalized single Pareto distribution to estimate extreme tail quantiles.
