View source: R/pgfIhypergeometric.R

Description

This function calculates value of the pgf's inverse of the hypergeometric distribution.

Usage

1
pgfIhypergeometric(s, params)

Arguments

s

Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be from interval [-1,1]. In the opposite pgf diverges.

params

List of the parameters of the hypergeometric distribution, such that params<-c(m,n,p), where m is the number of white balls in the urn, n is the number of black balls in the urn, must be less or equal than m, and p is probability.

params<-c(5,3,.2)
pgfIhypergeometric(.5,params)

## The function is currently defined as

pgfIhypergeometric <- function(s,params) {
    xval<-length(s)
    for (i in 1:length(s)) {
        func<-function(x) pgfhypergeometric(x,params)-s[i]
        xval[i]<-uniroot(func,lower=0,upper=1)$root
    }
    xval
}
