This comprehensive text  gives an interesting  and useful blend  of the mathematical, probabilistic and statistical tools used in heavy-tail analysis.  Heavy tails are characteristic of many  phenomena where the probability of a single huge value impacts heavily.  Record-breaking insurance losses,  financial-log returns, files sizes stored on a server, transmission rates of files are all examples of  heavy-tailed phenomena. Key features: * Unique  text devoted to heavy-tails * Emphasizes both probability modeling and statistical methods for fitting models.   Most  treatments focus on one or the other but not both * Presents broad applicability  of heavy-tails to the fields of data networks, finance (e.g., value-at- risk), insurance, and hydrology * Clear, efficient and coherent exposition, balancing  theory and actual data to show the applicability and limitations of certain methods * Examines in detail the mathematical properties of the methodologies as well as their implementation in  Splus or R statistical languages * Exposition driven by numerous examples and exercises Prerequisites for the reader include a prior course in stochastic processes and probability, some statistical background, some familiarity with time series analysis, and ability to use (or at least to learn) a statistics package such as R or Splus. This work will serve second-year graduate students and researchers in the areas of applied mathematics, statistics, operations research, electrical engineering, and economics.

Review:

"The book is divided into three general parts covering introduction, probability and statistics. ... Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter. Naturally all of the exercises are technical and proof based. Doing the exercises will greatly improve the understanding of the subject. ... The book is suitable for graduate students in mathematical finance, finance, operations research and other similar fields. It should also be of great value to practitioners in finance ... ." --Ita Cirovic Doney, MathDL, May, 2007

"The author has written this book in his own entertaining, elegant, reader-friendly and at the same time fully rigorous style. ... This book will be valued both by newcomers to the theory of extreme values and by already established researchers as a reference source and a chance to appreciate the author s own views on extremes and the related mathematical toolbox. ... is a must for each serious mathematical library, and it will surely find its place on personal bookshelves of many applied probabilists." --Ilya S. Molchanov, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 j

" This is a survey of the mathematical, probabilistic and statistical tools used in heavy-tail analysis as well as some examples of their use. ... This book could be used very conveniently for a Masters-level course in point processes or regular variation; theoretical concepts are introduced in a pedagogical way, and several exercises accompany each chapter. Researchers in applied probability or statistics will also benefit from reading this book. It cleverly mixes probabilistic modeling and statistical methodology with powerful mathematical tools." --Anne-Laure Fougéres and Philippe Soulier, SIAM Review, Vol. 50 (2), 2008
