An extension of Panjer’s recursion. (English) Zbl 1098.91540
The paper extends Panjer’s recursion to the Panjer class of order \(k\) for an arbitrary positive integer \(k\). The derivations depend on a differential equation characterizing the probability generating function of a Panjer distribution. These results are of interest in catastrophe excess-of-loss reinsurance.
