Modern Actuarial Theory and Practice
Author(s): Philip Booth, Robert Chadburn, Steven Haberman, Dewi James, Zaki Khorasanee, Robert H Plumb, Ben Rickayzen
In the years since the publication of the best-selling first edition, the incorporation of ideas and theories from the rapidly growing field of financial economics has precipitated considerable development of thinking in the actuarial profession. Modern Actuarial Theory and Practice, Second Edition integrates those changes and presents an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of UK and international actuarial theory, practice and modeling. It describes all of the traditional areas of actuarial activity, but in a manner that highlights the fundamental principles of actuarial theory and practice as well as their economic, financial, and statistical foundations.
