pgfDlogarithmicbinomial {Compounding}R Documentation

Function pgfDlogarithmicbinomial.

Description

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

Usage

pgfDlogarithmicbinomial(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 logarithmic-binomial distribution, such that params<-c(p1,p2,m,n), where p1, p2 are the probabilities, m, n are the positive integers.
