Robust Bayesian inference of generalized Pareto distribution. (English. French summary) Zbl 1358.62032

Summary: In this work, robust Bayesian estimation of the generalized Pareto distribution is proposed. The methodology is presented in terms of oscillation of posterior risks of the Bayesian estimators. By using a Monte Carlo simulation study, we show that, under a suitable generalized loss function, we can obtain a robust Bayesian estimator of the model.
