The joint distribution of surplus immediately before ruin and the deficit at ruin under interest force. (English) Zbl 1083.62547

Summary: We consider a compound Poisson risk model with a constant interest force. We investigate the joint distribution of the surplus immediately before and after ruin. By adapting the techniques of B. Sundt and J. L. Teugels [Insur. Math. Econ. 16, 7–22 (1995; Zbl 0838.62098)], we obtain integral equations satisfied by the joint distribution function and a Lundberg-type inequality. In the case of zero initial reserve and the case of exponential claim sizes, we obtain explicit expressions for the joint distribution function.
