Abstract: A density ratio model is proposed for modeling extreme values of non-identically distributed observations. The proposed model can be regarded as a proportional tails model for multisample settings. A semiparametric specification is devised so to link all elements in a family of scedasis densities through a tilt from a baseline scedasis. Inference is conducted by empirical likelihood inference methods. An application is given to model the dynamics of the frequency of extreme losses of some leading cryptocurrencies.
