For Monday 27 February: Exercises 1 and 2 from the file «Exercises.pdf» which is published in the «Undervisningsmateriale» folder.

Exercise 1 relates specifically to applying the properties of the GBM model. In Exercise 2 the challenge is to study the effect of combining insurance risk and financial risk, and to analyze and understand differences in the risk properties. We will use extensive time to go through these exercises next Monday.

In this course we will describe, model and analyze complex and composite phenomena which comprise both insurance related and financial related risks. We will show how to make theoretical models operational by IT computing. The phenomena that we study represent "real life" problems that life insurance providers and pension funds are exposed to.

The teaching comprises a mixture of theory and exercises, including extensive computer based modeling for computational purposes.

In order to benefit from the course, students are strongly encouraged to put extensive effort into solving the exrecises. The syllabus is defined as theory covered in the classes.

There is no fixed textbook that matches the syllabus, but various references and notes will be provided during the course. As of Monday 13 February the theory in Bølvikens notes "Life and stat-dependant insurance" has been covered.
