Asymptotic behavior of the finite time ruin probability of a gamma Levy process


  • Zbigniew Michna
  • Aleksander Weron


In this paper we consider a jump-diffusion type approximation of the classical risk process by a gamma Levy process. We derive here the asymptotic behavior (lower and upper bounds) of the finite time ruin probability for any gamma Levy process.
