README.md

This is the README.md file used in the LaTeX package actuarialsymbol.

The package is distributed through CTAN.

See the Actuarial notation with LaTeX page for more detailed information.

actuarialsymbol

Package actuarialsymbol provides commands to compose actuarial symbols of life contingencies and financial mathematics characterized by subscripts and superscripts on both sides of a principal symbol. The package also features commands to easily and consistently position precedence numbers above or below statuses in symbols for multiple lives contracts.

Since actuarial notation can get quite involved, the package defines a number of shortcut macros to ease entry of the most common elements. Appendix A of the package documentation lists the commands to typeset a large selection of symbols of life contingencies.
