# pgfDthomas: Function pgfDthomas In Compounding: Computing Continuous Distributions

## Description

This function calculates value of the pgf of the Thomas distribution.

## Usage

 `1` ```pgfDthomas(s, params) ```

## Arguments

 `s` Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be from interval [-1,1]. In the opposite pgf divegrates. `params` List of the parameters of the Thomas distribution, such that params<-c(lambda,theta), where both parameters are positive.
