Analysis of extreme events [8]

Bullet points include: Also motivated by mathematical arguments.A generalisation of the Central Limit Theorem (so a special case is the Normal distribution).Characteristic function has a particular mathematical form.No simple closed form for density or cumulative distribution function, except for a handful of special cases, so potentially difficult to handle mathematically.Infinite variance (and if tail index is low enough then also infinite mean)
