Concerning copula simulations II.6.7.2-II.6.7.3

Greetings Carol!

first of all thanks for great and clear books. i am student from Helsinki university in doctoral program specializing in banking research.

i have question concerning copulas. i attached some material for thinking the problem (my perspective in attached carol copula questions.xls).

copula is defined as

C(u1,....,un) = Pr(U1<u1,...., Un < un)

and to rewrite the same to using the probability function F(X1) of assets.

C(u1,....,un) = Pr(U1<F(X1),...., Un < F(Xn))

i read this that the copula would be the probability that the assets X1,....Xn gets event that gets value which corresponds to F(x) < U1 and the U1 is a treshhold like 0.05.

i attached 3 questions for you concerning copula related how to interpret the copula. i hope you could educate me and clarify my confusion,

thanks in advance,

markus
