Firstly, the use of the logit models to estimate the PDs is particularly appreciated in some credit industries, as, for instance, the credit retail one. The logit model predicts pretty well the PD on loans, consumer credit, credit cards, ... and all concerns the retail consumer world. Mainly, those listed are the principal sub-industries in the credit ...

A risk measure $\rho$ applied to time series $X \in \mathbb{R^n}$ yields $Y \in \mathbb{R} $. i.e. $\rho: \mathbb{R^n} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ As for implementation (using R), see here. A look at the formulas for VAR and ES (which is exactly the same as CVAR) should clear up any confusion.

I though about this one more time: method of moments means that you do the following: calculate some statistics (i.e. the moments) on the sample express the moments of the distribution that you want to fit in terms of the parameters of this distribution solve the resulting system of equations. If you estimate $E[S^n]$ by averaging the ...

as you post 3 questions on this topic and after reading them: this is homerwork/study material- right? So for comparing Fast Fourier, MC and Panjer there are tons of publications out there. For the formulas for the momemts of $S$ look here or google "moments in the collective risk model". You should notice that: If you know the distribution of $N$ and $X$ ...

You can do the following: For each $i$ in $1$ to number of Mont-Carlo runs $K$ simulate the number of losses $N_i$ simulate $N_i$ many loss-sizes $X_{i,1},\ldots,X_{i,N_i}$ calculate $L_i = \sum_{j=1}^{N_i} X_{i,j}$ Doing this you get a sample of losses $L_1,\ldots,L_K$ and you can do all sorts of hisograms, density fits, VaR, ES calculations on it. ...
