## Book description

Suitable for statisticians, mathematicians, actuaries, and students interested in the problems of insurance and analysis of lifetimes, this book presents contemporary statistical techniques for analyzing life distributions and life insurance problems. It mainly focuses on the analysis of an individual life and describes statistical methods based on empirical and related processes. The text not only contains traditional material but also incorporates new problems and techniques not discussed in existing actuarial literature. Coverage ranges from analyzing the tails of distributions of lifetimes to modeling population dynamics with migrations.
