MSc Programme in Actuarial Mathematics
MSc Programme in Mathematics-Economics
Stochastic processs and methods applied in life insurance models.
At the end of the course, the students are expected to be able to
- Apply theorems on stochastic processes of finite variation, including theorems on counting processes,
- Markov chains, integral processes, martingales.
- Analyse Markov chain models and derive Thiele differential equation for reservs using martingale methods.
- Analyse extended models and derive differential equations for reservs.
- Analyse statistical parametric life history models.
- Analyse statistical nonparametric life history models.
To make the student operational and to give the student knowledge in application of stochastic processes in life insurance.
