Page 36 - ... the application of the theory of computing the average duration of human life after any given age is founded on two assumptions. " Of these the first is that the experience of the future will accord with that of the past ; that is to say, that what ratio soever may have been found to exist in times past between the number surviving and the number dying in a given time, out of a specified number of individuals observed upon, the same ratio will be found to subsist in time to come between the number...
Page 80 - B dedepends ; if, moreover, TT denote the probability of a payment of B being received in the first year, and II the probability of the single life, or of all the lives, on which that benefit depends, surviving a year ; — then will the following equation always subsist : — For, if the benefit...
Page 69 - Expec." at a specified age, considered as a term of years, is more likely than any other term to be the actual duration of that life ; and another is that it denotes a term of years which the life in question is as likely to survive as not. Neither of these notions is correct. The first would imply that the year in which a life is most likely to fail is that in which its
Page 5 - All the entries of the same kind — direct and inverse — are brought together, the whole of the logarithms being found before a single natural number is taken out. We consequently proceed right through the table; and as we proceed, we find two, three, four, and even as many as six and eight entries on the same opening. At the close, moreover, the taking out of the numbers may, if necessary, be turned over to an assistant. On the other hand, when the common tables are used, direct and inverse entries...
Page 90 - I.) the present value of £1 to be received at the same time provided (x) be then alive, the difference between these two is evidently the present value of £l to be received a year hence if (x) be then dead.
Page 1 - All mathematical tables consist of two series of corresponding values, each value in either series having a value corresponding to it in the other.
