Θεμελίωση και εξέλιξη της διοικητικής κινδύνου

The foundation of risk management and its evolution to its contemporary state of art, is best understood by searching its origins and inspecting its rich history. If one focuses on the factors that created the need to build a set of mechanisms or algorithms so that the occurrence of some hazardous events/ activities be prevented or their harmful impacts be subsided, only then he may understand what is the true subject of risk management and how it reached the state of an integrated and almost independent scientific field. The objective of this thesis is to present a systematic and critical review of the foundations and evolution of the discipline of risk management. The gradual development of the fundamental principles, operations, methods, tactical and strategic goals of risk management are reviewed and a number of practical applications in several scientific fields are given. Finally, we develop and study a stochastic discounting model, that is subsequently used to analyze and solve real practical problems in the discipline of risk management. The underlying theoretical framework of the model studied, involves the distribution of the maximum observation of a random number of random variables. So, before advancing to the investigation of the stochastic discounting model, we first present some results on the distribution of the maximum observation in a sample consisting of a random number of independent positive random variables and some related applications.
