Actuarial Probability

This course is based on the first examination of the Society of Actuaries. Its content is largely dependent on that examination. Presently, it covers: calculus of a single variable (integration, differentiation, infinite series, Taylor's series etc.); calculus of several variables (Jacobians, Lagrange multipliers, double and triple integrals, etc.); probability Theory (discrete and continuous distributions, conditional probability and expectations, Bayes' rule, joint distributions, moment generating functions, the central limit theorem, etc.) The problems are drawn from old SOA examinations and most will have an insurance industry emphasis. Much of the material is a review of several courses, but this review is extensive and probably exceeds most interested students' backgrounds.
