Abstract: Copulas are an important tool to formulating models for multivariate data analysis. An ideal copula should conform to a wide range of problems at hand, being either symmetric or asymmetric, and exhibiting flexible extent of tail dependence. The copula to be discussed is exactly one such candidate. Specifically, a class of full-range tail dependence copulas will be introduced which has been proved quite useful for modeling dependent (insurance/financial) data. The key mechanism for constructing such flexible copula models and some future research related to this topic will be discussed.
