# pgfDlogarithmic: Function pgfDlogarithmic. In Compounding: Computing Continuous Distributions

## Description

This function calculates value of the pgf's first derivative of the logarithmic distribution.

## Usage

 `1` ```pgfDlogarithmic(s, params) ```

## Arguments

 `s` Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be from interval [-1,1\]. In the opposite pgf diverges. `params` Represents paramemeter of logarithmic distribution, such that params<-theta, where theta is the probability.
