Stochastic Modeling — Theory and Reality from an Actuarial Perspective, 2010
A guide for practitioners interested in understanding this important emerging field, Stochastic Modeling —Theory and Reality from an Actuarial Perspective presents the mathematical and statistical framework necessary to develop stochastic models in any setting (insurance or otherwise). Sufficient mathematical detail is presented but no advanced background in mathematics or statistics is required.
This publication features case studies of life and non-life insurance companies, covering a range of topics relevant to capital and surplus modeling of life and non-life insurance companies, including Economic Capital calculations, stochastic reserve and capital calculations, embedded value analyses, and stochastic product pricing and risk management. Taken together, these case studies cover most of the widely-used insurance applications of stochastic modeling to date and provide an illustrative framework from which future applications can be developed.

About James C. H. Anderson
In coordination with friends and former associates of the late James Charles Henry Anderson, the Research Committee of The Actuarial Foundation signed an agreement in late 1995 to establish a memorial fund for awards and grants for achievements reflecting innovative, and even iconoclastic, ideas by individuals that reflect the values and leadership that were associated with Mr. Anderson during his lifetime.
