boost::accumulators::impl::pot_tail_mean_impl — Estimation of the (coherent) tail mean based on the peaks over threshold method (for both left and right tails)

// In header: <boost/accumulators/statistics/pot_tail_mean.hpp> template<typename Sample, typename Impl, typename LeftRight> struct pot_tail_mean_impl { // types typedef numeric::functional::average< Sample, std::size_t >::result_type float_type; typedef float_type result_type; // construct/copy/destruct pot_tail_mean_impl(dont_care); // public member functions template<typename Args> result_type result(Args const &) const; };

Computes an estimate for the (coherent) tail mean

where , and are the parameters of the generalized Pareto distribution that approximates the right tail of the distribution (or the mirrored left tail, in case the left tail is used). In the latter case, the result is mirrored back, yielding the correct result.
