# pgfwaring: Function pgfwaring In Compounding: Computing Continuous Distributions

## Description

This function calculates value of the pgf of the Waring distribution.

## Usage

 `1` ```pgfwaring(s, params) ```

## Arguments

 `s` Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be form interval [-1,1]. In the opposite pgf diverges. `params` List of the parameters of the Waring distribution, such that params<-c(c,a), where \$c>a\$ and both parameters are positive.
