Dieses Buch behandelt die klassischen Verfahren der Finanzmathematik (einschließlich Investitionen) unter konsequenter Ausrichtung auf das übergeordnete Äquivalenzprinzip der Finanzmathematik. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt in der Behandlung der - immer wieder lebhaft diskutierten - unterschiedlichen Effektivzinsberechnungsverfahren in der Praxis und der daraus abgeleiteten Aspekte zur "richtigen" Verzinsung von Kapital.

This workshop was organized with the support of GAMM, the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, on the occasion of J. Herzberger's 60th birthday. GAMM is thankful to him for all the time and work he spent in the preparation and holding of the meeting. The talks presented during the workshop and the papers published in this volume are part of the field of Verification Numerics. The important subject is fostered by GAMM already since a number of years, especially also by the GAMM FachausschuB (special interest group) "Rechnerarithmetik und Wissenschaft liches Rechnen". GiHz Alefeld Karlsruhe, Dezember 2001 (President of GAMM) Preface At the end of the year 2000, about 23 scientists from many countries gathered in the beautiful city of Munich on the occasion of the International GAMM Workshop on "Inclusion Methods for Nonlinear Problems with Applications in Engineering, Economics and Physics" from December 15 to 18. The purpose of this meeting was to bring together representatives of research groups from Austria, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Germany, Japan, Russia, Ukraine and Yugoslavia who in a wider sense work in the field of calculating numerical solutions with error-bounds. Most of those participants have already known each other from earlier occasions or closely cooperated in the past. Representatives from three Academies of Sciences were among the speakers of this conference: from the Bulgarian Academy, the Russian Academy and the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.

This book presents recent advances in the theory and implementation of intelligent and other computational techniques in the insurance industry. The paradigms covered encompass artificial neural networks and fuzzy systems, including clustering versions, optimization and resampling methods, algebraic and Bayesian models, decision trees and regression splines. Thus, the focus is not just on intelligent techniques, although these constitute a major component; the book also deals with other current computational paradigms that are likely to impact on the industry. The application areas include asset allocation, asset and liability management, cash-flow analysis, claim costs, classification, fraud detection, insolvency, investments, loss distributions, marketing, pricing and premiums, rate-making, retention, survival analysis, and underwriting. Contents: Insurance Applications of Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic, and Genetic Algorithms; Practical Applications of Neural Networks in Property and Casualty Insurance; An Integrated Data Mining Approach to Premium Pricing for the Automobile Insurance Industry; Population Risk Management: Reducing Costs and Managing Risk in Health Insurance; Using Neural Networks to Predict in the Marketplace; Merging Soft Computing Technologies in Insurance-Related Applications; Robustness in Bayesian Models for BonusOCoMalus Systems; Using Data Mining for Modeling Insurance Risk and Comparison of Data Mining and Linear Modeling Approaches; System Intelligence and Active Stock Trading; The Algebra of Cash Flows: Theory and Application; and other papers. Readership: Graduate students, academics, researchers and practitioners involved with actuarial science, insurance, statistics and management science."

Usury Laws

A legal and economic Evaluation of Interest Rate Restrictions in the European Union

Usury is the historical denomination of interest rate restrictions. The principle of Usura in the Roman ius communis as well as in canonic law started from the assumption that money lent from others should not bear interest. This is because unless the creditor could prove that the withhold of money caused him damage, money could not create fruits. While the upcoming trade economy developed the idea that the elapsed time between the claim and its fulfillment should be priced with interest, a second principle of interest limitation became important: the laesio enormis: interest rates should be limited to the double of the average. Since consumer credit has spread into the market economy and become a major source of allocating future income to present needs (extended mainly by rationally acting banks), both principles have lost of their impact onto the credit market. But a number of member states have newly introduced rate ceilings. With the financial crisis, the discussion whether interest rates in consumer credit needs more regulation gathered momentum. The present study was commissioned by DG Internal Market. It has two parts: a socio-legal analysis of all forms of direct and indirect limitations for the pricing of credit by the Institute for Financial Services (iff) in Hamburg and an economic part investigating the effects of such restrictions to the consumer credit market by the Center for European Economic Policy (ZEW) in Mannheim. Prof. Dr. Udo Reifner is professor of commercial law at Trento University and research director of the iff. Prof. Dr. Michael Schroeder is professor for Asset Management at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and head of the research on \"International Financial Markets and Finance Management” at ZEW.
