Study Notes included:

  • "Mixture distributions in Exams MLC/3L and C/4", 12 pages intended to explain how to compute with the mixture distributions that appear in Exam MLC/3L and especially in Exam C/4—including a simple way to compute with the kernel-smoothing or kernel-density method of Exam C/4.
  • "(Common) Shock models in Exam MLC", 11 pages intended  to explain a simple way to compute with shock models that makes them a special case of the more commonly tested material on joint independent lifetimes.
  • "LogNormal stock-price models", 11 pages primarily intended to provide prerequisite background on these models that is covered in the new MFE/3F syllabus material and through May 2009 was covered on Exam C/4. While initially intended for those taking C/4 before through May 2009 without the MFE/3F background, it might still be helpful for MFE/3F students as well.
