Abstract :
A new two-parameter family of analytical functions will be introduced for the modelling of loss distributions and exposure curves The curve family contains the Maxwell-Boltzmann, the Bose-Einstein and the Fermi-Dirac distributions, which are well known in statistical mechanics. The functions can be used for the modelling of loss distributions on the finite Interval [0, 1 ] as well as on the interval [0, ∞]. The functions defined on the interval [0, 1] are discussed in detail and related to several Swiss Re exposure curves used in practice The curves can be fitted to the first two moments µ and σ-of a loss distribution or to the first moment µ and the total loss probability p.
