Stationary-excess operator and convex stochastic orders


  • Lefèvre, Claude
  • Loisel, Stéphane


The present paper aims to point out how the stationary-excess operator and its iterates transform s-convex stochastic orders and the associated moment spaces. This allows us to propose a new unified method on constructing s-convex extrema for distributions that are known to be t-monotone. Both discrete and continuous cases are investigated. Several extremal distributions under monotonicity conditions are derived. They are illustrated with some applications in insurance.
