This paper proposes a simulation method of elliptical multivariate regular variation. It is prominent to simulate its spectral measure that describes the angular component of multivariate extreme value. Based on the density function of spectral measure derived from elliptical distribution, which is analytically tractable, we apply acceptancerejection algorithm for simulating the spectral measure. Furthermore, based on the algorithm, a simulation method of multivariate extreme is proposed by utilizing the generic properties of multivariate regular variation. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated by a numerical study.
Keywords : Acceptance-rejection algorithm, elliptical distribution, multivariate regular variation.
