# New on CTAN: actuarialsymbol

Package actuarialsymbol provides facilities 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 the 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 documentation also lists the commands to typeset a large selection of symbols of life contingencies. The package requires `actuarialangle` (version v2.0 dated 2017/04/10 or above is needed to typeset the documentation).

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://ctan.org/pkg/actuarialsymbol The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/actuarialsymbol/
