Working through a lecture in performance management course (topic about downsideoriented risk measures and lower partial moments), I have encountered several expressions of the following form: LPM(2,t)(R)=integral((tR)^2dF(R))=E[(max{tR;0})^2] where F(R) is the cumulative distribution function, E is the expectation, LPM is the lower partial moment or, for example, LPM(2,t)(R)=t*(2*LPM(1,t)(R)  t*LPM(0,t)(R)) + integral(R^2dF(R)) It was also mentioned in one article that the integrals are of LebesgueStieltjes type. I was not taught anything like this either at university or at school, so I would ask you to provide any links to books/chapters from books/articles from where I can fill this gap in knowledge. I want to be able to understand the above transformations and conduct them on my own, I also would like to cover the whole theory behind this. Also, how large is the volume of theory I have to cover, given that I only made some simple integral calculus at school? Thank you very much. Last edited by skipjack; May 10th, 2017 at 09:08 PM.
