The Pólya-Aeppli process and ruin problems

Received16 Sep 2003
Revised21 May 2004


The Pólya-Aeppli process as a generalization of the homogeneous Poisson process is defined. We consider the risk model in which the counting process is the Pólya-Aeppli process. It is called a Pólya-Aeppli risk model. The problem of finding the ruin probability and the Cramér-Lundberg approximation is studied. The Cramér condition and the Lundberg exponent are defined. Finally, the comparison between the Pélya-Aeppli risk model and the corresponding classical risk model is given.
