Change point and trend analyses of annual expectile curves of tropical storms
Motivated by the conjectured existence of trends in the intensity of tropical storms, this paper proposes new inferential methodology to detect a trend in the annual pattern of environmental data. The new methodology can ...
Frictions or deadlocks? Job polarization with search and matching frictions
