Interest and mortality randomness in some annuities
Abstract A model is presented which can be used when interest rates and future lifetimes are random, for certain annuities. Expressions for the mean values and the standard deviations of the presentExpand

Extra randomness in certain annuity models
Abstract An alternative model is presented which can be used when interest rates and future lifetimes are random, for certain annuities. The Wiener stochastic process is a major component in theExpand

A stochastic model of computer use
Abstract This paper develops a stochastic model of computer use which can serve as a management tool in computer centers. The model draws on the extensive research done in collective risk theory.Expand
Preventing the plagiarism of programming assignments (Panel Discussion)
TLDR
Plagiarism on programming assignments, particularly in lower-level computer classes, has been a problem of considerable concern. Expand
