Abstract

We consider the problem of computing finite-time survival probabilities for various risk models.We develop an approximating discrete-timemultinomial lattice thatmimics the evolution of the corresponding continuous risk process. A simple recursive algorithm to compute survival probabilities is described. Numerical results show that the proposed scheme yields accurate values in all the considered cases.
