Parisian ruin probability for spectrally negative L\'{e}vy processes


  • Ronnie Loeffen
  • Irmina Czarna
  • Zbigniew Palmowski


In this note we give, for a spectrally negative Levy process, a compact formula for the Parisian ruin probability, which is defined by the probability that the process exhibits an excursion below zero, with a length that exceeds a certain fixed period r. The formula involves only the scale function of the spectrally negative Levy process and the distribution of the process at time r.
