Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Risks: Heavy-Tailed Distributions in Risk Management
Special Issue in Sustainability: Risk Theory Applications in Sustainable Economy
The heavy tailed distributions are not the only source of economic instability, but they can be modelled and handled using mathematical tools only. This feature makes them a hot topic in insurance practice in general and especially in regulatory institutions. Its interaction with the dependence issues is a usual complication, which produce many fruitful considerations.
The special issue aims to compile any paper with significant contribution in the state-of-the-art or in the facilitation of the practical implementation of the theoretical approach.
