Abstract : We consider the general problem of estimating the tail of a bivariate distribution. An extension of the threshold method for extreme values is developed, using a two-dimensional version of the Pickands-Balkema-de Hann Theorem. We construct a two-dimensional tail estimator and we provide its asymptotic properties. The dependence structure between the marginals is described by a copula.
