Abstract 0

In the classical compound Poisson model of the collective theory of risk let ?(u, y) denote the probability that ruin occurs and that the negative surplus at the time of ruin is less than ? y. It is shown how this function, which also measures the severity of ruin, can be calculated if the claim amount distribution is a translation of a combination of exponential distributions. Furthermore, these results can be applied to a certain discrete time model.
