Using extreme value models for analyzing river flow [electronic resource] /
Abstract (Summary)This thesis studies several statistical issues for extreme value models. Gumbel, Frechet, and Weibull distributions are used to find a generalized extreme value model using different block maxima are investiaged along with point process models and threshold models. An instructive example of water flow is presented and analysis is included to demonstrate these models.
