April 15 teaching

Lecture (one hour): The life table bootstrap (Section 2 in "Integrating Risk from different sources"). Exercises: 15.3.1,2,,8, 15.2.9

Published May 15, 2013 2:01 PM

Due to system trouble it has proced impossible to put out a new version of Exercises E6 and E7 as promised yesterday. We'll have to skip E7 on Tuesday 21, but E6 will be discussed. There is a misprint in the expression under d) in E6 where 1 should have been subtracted at the very right.

May 21 will be the last day of teaching. We'll discuss Exercies E11 AND  E12 in addition to those left from May 14.

Some final comments on the pensum (which is now downloadable form the home page) will also be given.

The problems for the exam will be given in English, but the answers

may be written in Norwegian.

Sorry for the new format of the home page and in particular for the messages not longer being available at the front page (You MUST turn to the next page). This is due to unfortunate revisions carried out by UiO centrally.

We shall go through the course one more time by discussing a number of new exercises that will resemble in style those that will be presented at the final exam. We have been doing a lot of R programming throughout this spring  term. It's not so easy to allow this to enter a traditional school exam, but you will be asked to outline  informal programs where the syntax details do not count, and although such questions are not included in the Exercises E1-5 on April 30, they will be in later exercises in May.

Last part of the course: April 2 second goes out (lecturer abroad), we start again after Easter on April 9 (consult another message) and then each Tuesday up to May 14 with May 21 in reserve. We have at Easter concluded the asset part (lecturewise) and shall return to the liabilities once again with "Life Table Risk" (Section 2 in "Integrating risk from many sources") and Sections 5 and 6 in "State-dependent Insurance". Since the course has new clothing on, there will be a test exam in early May to indicate the kind of questions that awaits you at the real exam. There will also at the end be a summarizing lecture trying to tie the main lines together.
