Function pgfpascalpoisson

Share:

Description

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

Usage

1
pgfpascalpoisson(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 Pascal Poisson distribution, such that params<-c(theta,mu, a), where all parameters are positive.

##The function is currently defined as

pgfpascalpoisson <- 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)<3) 
     stop("At least one value in params is missing")
if (length(params)>3) 
     stop("The length of params is 3")
    theta<-params[1]
    mu<-params[2]
    a<-params[3]
if (theta<=0)
    stop ("Parameter theta must be positive")
if (mu<=0)
    stop ("Parameter mu must be positive")
if (a<=0)
    stop ("Parameter a must be positive")
    (1+mu/(a*theta)-mu/(a*theta)*exp(theta*(s-1)))^(-a)
}
