The Mathematical Limit of Longevity: A New Analysis
Emanuela Pasqualitto

In this work we have taken our cue from the remarks made by the author B.M. Weon [18-22] in order to study the existence, or not, of a mathematical limit of longevity. Starting from the remarks made by the author, our purpose was to find a different survival function and therefore a new model (Pasqualitto Model) to replicate the analysis he conducted with reference to the mortality tables of the Italian population for the period 1950-2006. The choice of a different function was carried out in order to identify a model which, with reference to the analysis conducted by us, would better fit to the actual data, especially in relation to older ages, ages that, from a demographic point of view, have always been critical to be represented and synthesized by a suitable model.
