Actuarial Functions and Heavy Tailed Distributions.

Functions and data sets for actuarial science: modeling of loss distributions; risk theory and ruin theory; simulation of compound models, discrete mixtures and compound hierarchical models; credibility theory. Support for many additional probability distributions to model insurance loss amounts and loss frequency: 19 continuous heavy tailed distributions; the Poisson-inverse Gaussian discrete distribution; zero-truncated and zero-modified extensions of the standard discrete distributions. Support for phase-type distributions commonly used to compute ruin probabilities.
