We present a constructive and self-contained approach to data driven infinite partition-of-unity copulas that were recently introduced in the literature. In particular, we consider negative binomial and Poisson copulas and present a solution to the problem of fitting such copulas to highly asymmetric data in arbitrary dimensions.

Dependence Modeling aims to provide a medium for exchanging results and ideas in the area of multivariate dependence modeling. Topics include Copula methods, environmental sciences, estimation and goodness-of-fit tests, extreme-value theory, limit laws, mass transportations, measures of association, multivariate distributions and tests, quantitative risk management, risk assessment, risk models, risk measures and stochastic orders and time series.
