Approximations for stop-loss premiums. (English) Zbl 0624.62097
We derive an approximation for stop-loss premiums for a number of specific cases. Both exponential and subexponential estimates are derived while special emphasis is given to the compound Poisson case. The full set of examples should provide a wide variety of situations covering most cases occurring in practice.
