Summary description:  Actuarial symbols of life contingencies and financial mathematics

Announcement text:

 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).
