Summation by parts (discrete analogue of integration by parts) formula can be found in the Appendix 5 of Bowers, et al. ACTL3002: Week 2 4 Relationship to Whole Life Insurance By recalling from interest theory that a K + 1  = ( 1 v K + 1 ) / d , we have the useful relationship: a x = 1 A x d Alternatively, we write: A x = 1 d a x The variance formula can be calculated as: Var ( a K + 1  ) = Var parenleftbigg 1 v k + 1 d parenrightbigg = Var ( v k + 1 ) d 2 = 2 A x ( A x ) 2 d 2 Summation byparts can also be used to derive the recursive relationship: a x = 1 + vE [ a K ( x )+ 1   K ( x ) 1 ] P ( K ( x ) 1 ) = 1 + vp x a x + 1 ACTL3002: Week 2 5 Temporary Life AnnuityDue Pays a benefit of a unit $1 at the beginning of each year as long as the annuitant ( x ) survives for up to a total of n years The present value random variable is Y = braceleftBigg a K + 1  , K < n a n...
