Extreme value theory or extreme value analysis (EVA) is a branch of statistics dealing with the extreme deviations from the median of probability seeks to assess, from a given ordered sample of a given random variable, the probability of events that are more extreme than any previously observed.

Extreme value analysis is widely used in many disciplines, such as .Extreme Value Theory offers a careful, coherent exposition of the subject starting from the probabilistic and mathematical foundations and proceeding to the statistical theory.
