## Function pgfDbinomialbinomial

### Description

This function calculates value of the pgf's firts derivative of the binomial-binomial distribution.

### Usage

pgfDbinomialbinomial(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(p1,p2,m,n), where theta is the positive number, p1, p2 are the probabilities, and m,n are the positive integers.

n<-params[4]
if ((p1>=1)|(p1<=0))
stop ("Parameter p1 belongs to the interval (0,1)")
