Abstract

Estimating the human longevity and computing of life expectancy are central to the population dynamics. These aspects were studied seriously by scientists since 15th century, including renowned astronomer Edmund Halley. From basic principles of population dynamics, we propose a method to compute life expectancy from incomplete data.
