Distribution of Deficit at Ruin for a PDMP Insurance Risk Model

Original papers


In this paper we consider the risk process described by a piecewise deterministic Markov processes (PDMP). We mainly discuss the distribution of the deficit at ruin for the risk process. We derive the integrodi differential equation satisfied by this distribution. We obtain the explicit expressions for it for certain choices of the claim amount distribution.
