Iwasalwaysintriguedbythevariousformsofriskthatareassociatedwith human life and activity and how they can be mitigated forthe individual by contractual risk exchange between two or moreparties. Certain forms of certainty make life interesting and moresafe. I was always attracted to mathematics because it allows ofstatements that are non-trivial and still indisputably true. Thesetwo areas of interest synthesize perfectly into actuarial/financialmathematics, which gives precise contents to notions of risk anddevelops methods for measuring and controlling it. [...]Ragnar Norberg3Preliminary remarkLife insurance mathematics is perhaps the most interesting and challengingfield at the interface of modern actuarial and financial mathematics.
