"What is this?" - Chain rule.

"and this?" - difficult to make out your working, but I would have thought 1/lc, if I read it correctly. So, I don't think what you have is correct, but as I said difficult to read.

there's no letter l but i and what i read (didn't wrote it of course) is:

d/ds * FT (S-C/i*C) = fT(S-C/i*C) * d/ds * S-C/i*C = 1/C * fT(S-C/i*C)

And the red part I can't understand.

Oh i got it now.

What's "i" here, sqrt of -1, or a constant? And could we have a bit of context.
It looks like a cdf, and a pdf, plus?

i is a constant, the interest rate. It could be a mistake, these notes are too clumsy.

OK.

Since this isn't stats, then.

Is it the case that ?

I think the final part should be

? This is basic statistics. If you differentiate the probability distribution function you get the probability density function. Or is it not?

The whole problem is this. S=C (i+it). S is the final value, C is the capital and i is the interest. Assume that t follows T , which is a random variable, with known E(T), V(T),F(T) and f(T). Find E(S), V(S), F(S), f(S).

without minus?

Yes. Since you didn't confirm my post on cdf/pdf, and talked about interest, I though it was something to do with finances (which I know nothing about, hence my question), rather than statistics.

Makes sense now.

Is there anything still outstanding?

Got to cook now, but will pick it up when I'm done.

The derivative wrt s, of (s-C)/(iC) is 1/iC.

Nowhere, you're right. Just an i missing. Thanks.
