# pgfpoissonlindley: Function pgfpoissonlindley In Compounding: Computing Continuous Distributions

## Description

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

## Usage

 `1` ```pgfpoissonlindley(s, params) ```

## Arguments

 `s` Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be from interval [-1,1]. In the opposite pgf diverges. `params` Positive parameter of the Poisson-Lindley distribution, such that params<-theta.
