Description

Objects of class "actuarialtable" inherit the structure of class "lifetable" adding just the slot for interest rate, interest.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("actuarialtable", ...). Creation is the same as lifetable objects creation, the slot for interest must be added too.

Slots

interest:

Object of class "numeric" slot for interest rate, e.g. 0.03

x:

Object of class "numeric" age slot

lx:

Object of class "numeric" subjects at risk at age x

name:

Object of class "character" name of the actuarial table

Extends

Class "lifetable", directly.

Methods

coerce

signature(from = "actuarialtable", to = "data.frame"): moves from actuarialtable to data.frame

coerce

signature(from = "actuarialtable", to = "numeric"): coerce from actuarialtable to a numeric

getOmega

signature(object = "actuarialtable"): as for lifetable

print

signature(x = "actuarialtable"): tabulates the actuarial commutation functions

show

signature(object = "actuarialtable"): show method

summary

signature(object = "actuarialtable"): prints brief summary
