This talk presents generalized Pareto copulas (GPC), which turn out to be a key to multivariate extreme value theory.Any GPC can be represented in an easy analytic way using a particular type of norm on $\mathbb{R}^d$, called $D$-norm. The characteristic property of a GPC is its exceedance stability.GPC might help to end the debate: What is a \emph{multivariate} generalized Pareto distribution?
