Abstract : We present a nonparametric family of estimators for the tail index of a Weibull tail-distribution when functional covariate is available. Our estimators are based on a kernel estimator of extreme conditional quantiles. Asymptotic normality of the estimators is proved under mild regularity conditions. Their finite sample performances are illustrated both on simulated and real data.
