  • Details an effective approach between mathematicians and statisticians for dealing with actuarial, insurance and financial problems
  • Gathers a selection of about the one hundred papers presented at the international conference MAF 2008

The interaction between mathematicians and statisticians reveals to be an effective approach for dealing with actuarial, insurance and financial problems, both in an academic and in an operative perspective. The international conference MAF 2008, held at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venezia (Italy) in 2008, had precisely this purpose, and the collection here published gathers a selection of about the one hundred papers presented at the conference and successively referred and reviewed to this aim. They cover a wide variety of subjects in actuarial, insurance and financial fields, all treated in light of the successful cooperation between the two quantitative approaches.
