On Approximating Law-Invariant Comonotonic Coherent Risk Measures

  • Yumiharu Nakano (a1)


The optimal quantization theory is applied for approximating law-invariant comonotonic coherent risk measures. Simple Lp -norm estimates for the risk measures provide the rate of convergence of that approximation as the number of quantization points goes to infinity.
