Function pgfbinomial

Description

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

Usage

1
pgfbinomial(s, params)

Arguments

s

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

params

List of the parameters of the binomial distribution, such that params<-c(n,theta), where n is the size, while theta is the probability.

##The function is currently defined as

pgfbinomial <- function(s,params) {
k<-s[abs(s)>1]
if (length(k)>0)
    warning("At least one element of the vector s are out of interval [-1,1]")
if (length(params)<2) 
    stop("At least one value in params is missing")
if (length(params)>2) 
    stop("The length of params is 2")
       n<-params[1]
       theta<-params[2]
if ((theta>=1)|(theta<=0))
    stop ("Parameter theta belongs to the interval (0,1)")
if (n<0)
     stop("Parameter n must be positive")
 if(!(abs(n-round(n))<.Machine$double.eps^0.5))
stop("Parameter n must be positive integer")
    (1-theta+theta*s)^n
