Sammanfattning : In practice there is a long tradition of actuaries calculating reserve estimates according to deterministic methods without explicit reference to a stochastic model. For instance, the chain-ladder was originally a deterministic reserving method. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Alarm systems are used in many situations, and should be as efficient as possible. In this thesis optimal predictive alarm systems, event predictors, are presented for general linear time series models with external signals. This family of process models include e.g. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis is comprised of five papers that all relate to bootstrap methodology in analysis of non-stationary time series.The first paper starts with the fact that the Dickey-Fuller unit root test using asymptotic critical value has bad small sample performance. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : When we study the properties of a test procedure, two aspects are of prime importance. Firstly, we wish to know if the actual size of the test (i.e., the probability of rejecting the null when true) is close to the nominal size (used for calculating the critical values). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : We propose a new mathematical model for relative collision safety in cars. Our present research is restricted to head-on crashes between two cars and we try to determine how much of the injury risk in a crash that depends on car model. The relative risks include the driver populations of the different car models. LÄS MER
