Extreme value theory
An area of statistical research that focuses on modelling the extreme values of return distributions. This is important in finance because many models (for example the Black-Scholes model) assume that the Distribution of returns is log-normal. However, real-world distributions are found to have fat-tails – implying that rare events such as crashes are more likely than the traditional theories suggest.
