Title: Tail prepivoting for the Hill estimator
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: It is well known that prepivoting reduces level error of confidence sets. We adapt this method to the context of the tail index estimation, introducing a procedure that we call tail prepivoting. We apply this procedure to the Hill estimator and establish its consistency.
