pgfpoissonbinomial: Function pgfpoissonbinomial In Compounding: Computing Continuous Distributions

Description

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

Usage

 `1` ```pgfpoissonbinomial(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 Poisson-binomial distribution, such that params<-c(theta,p,n), where theta is positive number, p is probability, and n is positive integer.
