Moment Bounds on Discrete Expected Stop-Loss Transforms, with Applications
- 118 Downloads
This paper shows how to make the best possible use of the information contained in the first few moments (mean, variance and skewness, say) of an integer-valued random variable when one is interested in expected stop-loss transforms. This allows to bound various quantities in applied probability, including the ruin probabilities, for instance.
