Actuarial Mathematics for Life Contingent Risks

22 July 2010**Actuarial Mathematics for Life Contingent Risks By David C. M. Dickson, Mary R. Hardy, Howard R. Waters**

22 July 2010

Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2009 | 510 Pages | ISBN: 0521118255 | PDF | 2 MB

How can actuaries equip themselves for the products and risk structures of the future? Using the powerful framework of multiple state models, three leaders in actuarial science give a modern perspective on life contingencies, and develop and demonstrate a theory that can be adapted to changing products and technologies. The book begins traditionally, covering actuarial models and theory, and emphasizing practical applications using computational techniques.

Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Actuarial Sciences and Finance

24 June 2011

**Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Actuarial Sciences and Finance**

The interaction between mathematicians and statisticians reveals to be an effective approach for dealing with actuarial, insurance and financial problems, both in an academic and in an operative perspective. The international conference MAF 2008, held at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venezia (Italy) in 2008, had precisely this purpose, and the collection here published gathers a selection of about the one hundred papers presented at the conference and successively referred and reviewed to this aim. They cover a wide variety of subjects in actuarial, insurance and financial fields, all treated in light of the successful cooperation between the two quantitative approaches. The subjects considered in the book are: mathematical models for actuarial sciences and insurance (namely: demographic risk; management of actuarial risks; management in insurance business; solvency-based approaches); mathematical models for finance (namely: energy markets; fund and portfolio management; methods for derivative pricing; risk and volatility models); statistical models in finance (namely: artificial neural networks; clustering techniques; kernel-based and robust estimation methods; multivariate methods for the analysis of financial markets; non-standard probabilistic models). The book is mainly addressed to academicians, practitioners, professionals and researchers....

Actuarial Theory for Dependent Risks: Measures, Orders and Models

9 March 2013

**Actuarial Theory for Dependent Risks: Measures, Orders and Models By Michel Denuit, Jan Dhaene**

English | pages: 458 | 2005 | ISBN: 047001492X | PDF | 3,5 mb

The increasing complexity of insurance and reinsurance products has seen a growing interest amongst actuaries in the modelling of dependent risks. For efficient risk management, actuaries need to be able to answer fundamental questions such as: Is the correlation structure dangerous? And, if yes, to what extent? Therefore tools to quantify, compare, and model the strength of dependence between different risks are vital. Combining coverage of stochastic order and risk measure theories with the basics of risk management and stochastic dependence, this book provides an essential guide to managing modern financial risk.

Nonlife Actuarial Models: Theory, Methods and Evaluation

22 July 2010**Nonlife Actuarial Models: Theory, Methods and Evaluation By Yiu-Kuen Tse**

22 July 2010

Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2009 | 540 Pages | ISBN: 0521764653 | PDF | 3 MB

Actuaries must pass exams, but more than that: they must put knowledge into practice. This coherent book gives complete syllabus coverage for Exam C of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) while emphasizing the concepts and practical application of nonlife actuarial models. Ideal for those approaching their professional exams, it is also a class-tested textbook for undergraduate university courses in actuarial science.

0521760119...Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance: A Deterministic Approach, 2nd edition

31 December 2013

Stephen Garrett, "Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance: A Deterministic Approach, 2nd edition"

English | ISBN: 0080982409 | 2013 | 470 pages | PDF | 5 MB

An Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance: A Deterministic Approach, 2e, offers a highly illustrated introduction to mathematical finance, with a special emphasis on interest rates. This revision of the McCutcheon-Scott classic follows the core subjects covered by the first professional exam required of UK actuaries, the CT1 exam. It realigns the table of contents with the CT1 exam and includes sample questions from past exams of both The Actuarial Profession and the CFA Institute. With a wealth of solved problems and interesting applications, An Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance stands alone in its ability to address the needs of its primary target audience, the actuarial student. It closely follows the syllabus for the CT1 exam of The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. It features new content and more examples. It includes past exam questions from The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and the CFA Institute.

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics: Teachers' Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics

24 September 2010

**Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics: Teachers' Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics in China and the United States**

Routledge | 2010 | ISBN: 0415873843, 0415873843, 0203856341 | 232 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Studies of teachers in the U.S. often document insufficient subject matter knowledge in mathematics. Yet, these studies give few examples of the knowledge teachers need to support teaching, particularly the kind of teaching demanded by recent reforms in mathematics education. Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics describes the nature and development of the knowledge that elementary teachers need to become accomplished mathematics teachers, and suggests why such knowledge seems more common in China than in the United States, despite the fact that Chinese teachers have less formal education than their U.S. counterparts.
