Abstract:We present a new family of copulas (generalized mean copulas) which is positive comprehensive and allows for upper tail dependence. It includes the Spearman copula and a specific Fréchet copula as special cases. Some properties and a generalized tail dependence estimator are derived. Finally, a small simulation study is conducted.
