Stochastic Processes in Non-Life Insurance (SkadeStok)
Stochastic processes in non-life insurance; ruin theory; claims reserving.
MSc Programme in Actuarial Mathematics
MSc Programme in Mathematics-Economics
Knowledge: At the end of the course, the student should
develop a thorough understanding of renewal theory, perturbation
techniques, and martingale techniques as they apply to problems in
risk theory. The student should develop a thorough
understanding of the theory behind the Cramér-Lundberg model in the
subexponential case. Moreover, the student should
develop a basic knowledge of claims reservation (chain ladder
method, Mack's formula, and some related methods).
Skills: The students should develop problem-solving skills for claims reservation and for estimating ruin probabilities in non-life insurance mathematics in various settings, including the cases of classical and subexponential claims and some of their standard generalizations.
Competencies: The student should develop a working knowledge of renewal theory, perturbation arguments, and martingale techniques in connection with the Cramér-Lundberg model and some of its extensions, and develop a working knowledge of claims reservation.
