Abstract

In this work we present an explicit formula for the Laplace transform in time of the finite time ruin probabilities of a classical Levy model with phase-type claims. Our result generalizes the ultimate ruin probability formula of Asmussen and Rolski [IME 10 (1991) 259]-see also the analog queuing formula for the stationary waiting time of the M/Ph/1 queue in Neuts [Matrix-geometric Solutions in Stochastic Models: An Algorithmic Approach. Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, MD, 1981]-and it considers the deficit at ruin as well. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
