View source: R/pgfhyperpoisson.R

Description

This function calculates value of the pgf of the hyper Poisson distribution.

Usage

1
pgfhyperpoisson(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 hyperpoisson distribution, such that params<-c(theta,lambda), where both parameters are positive.

## The function is currently defined as

pgfhyperpoisson <- function(s,params) {
    require(hypergeo)
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")

    theta<-params[1]
    lambda<-params[2]
if (theta<=0)
    stop ("Parameter theta must be positive")
if (lambda<=0)
    stop ("Parameter lambda must be positive")
genhypergeo(1,lambda,theta*s)/genhypergeo(1,lambda,theta)
}
