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

1 | ```
pgfnegativebinomial(s, params)
``` |

`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 negative binomial distribution, such that params<-c(theta,k), where theta is probability, and k is positive number. |
