Modeling high-dimensional dependence structures with parametric dependence models is a challenging and important part in statistics. The dependence models that we discuss here are based on bivariate building blocks and we illustrate how to assemble these building blocks to multivariate dependence structures. In the first part of the dissertation, we recall the pair-copula construction for random variables, present different extensions and apply the concept in an empirical study. In the second part, we introduce the new pair-Lévy copula construction to model the jump dependence of high-dimensional Lévy processes. Moreover, we present simulation and estimation algorithms, conduct a simulation study and discuss various applications of this concept.
