    • Climbing down Gaussian peaks 

      Adler, Robert; Samorodnitsky, Gennady (2015-01-28)
      How likely is the high level of a continuous Gaussian random field on an Euclidean space to have a ``hole'' of a certain dimension and depth? Questions of this type are difficult, but in this paper we make progress on ...
    • Closed-form Ruin Probabilities in Classical Risk Models with Gamma Claims 

      Constantinescu, Corina; Samorodnitsky, Gennady; Zhu, Wei (2016-12-12)
      In this paper we provide three equivalent expressions for ruin probabilities in a Cram\'er-Lundberg model with gamma distributed claims. The results are solutions of integro-differential equations, derived by means of ...
