The pdf and cdf of L(t) is again the convolution of bounded random variables. ... Another approach for treating the total loss as defined by equation 16 is to first consider the losses from the sequence of events of type i. If we assume that the events i form a Poisson process and the losses from individual realizations of the process are independent andanbsp;...
