Joint Quantile and Expected Shortfall Regression
Simultaneous modeling of the quantile and the expected shortfall of a response variable given
a set of covariates, see Dimitriadis and Bayer (2017) .

The goal of esreg is to simultaneously model the quantile and the
Expected Shortfall of a response variable given a set of covariates.

Installation
You can install the released version from
CRAN :

```
install.packages("esreg")
```

GitHub (development)
The latest version of the package is under development at
GitHub . You can install the
development version using these commands:

```
install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("BayerSe/esreg")
```

If you are using Windows, you need to install the
Rtools for compilation
of the codes.

Examples
```
# Load the esreg package
library(esreg)
# Simulate data from DGP-(2) in the paper
set.seed(1)
x <- rchisq(1000, df = 1)
y <- -x + (1 + 0.5 * x) * rnorm(1000)
# Estimate the model and the covariance
fit <- esreg(y ~ x, alpha = 0.025)
cov <- vcov(object = fit, sparsity = "nid", cond_var = "scl_sp")
```
