pgfIpoissonpascal {Compounding} R Documentation

## Function pgfIpoissonpascal

### Description

This function calculates value of the pgf's inverse of the Poisson-Pascal distribution.

### Usage

```pgfIpoissonpascal(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-Pascal distribution, such that params<-c(theta,p,k), where all parameters are positive.

### Examples

```params<-c(5,.4,.3)
pgfIpoissonpascal(.9,params)

## The function is currently defined as

pgfIpoissonpascal <- function(s,params) {
m<-s[abs(s)>1]
if (length(m)>0)
warning("At least one element of the vector s are out of interval [-1,1]")
if (length(params)<3)
stop("At least one value in params is missing")
if (length(params)>3)
stop("The length of params is 3")
theta<-params[1]
p<-params[2]
k<-params[3]
if (theta<=0)
stop ("Parameter theta must be positive")
if (p<=0)
stop ("Parameter lambda must be positive")
if (k<=0)
stop ("Parameter k must be positive")
(1+p-(1+log(s)/theta)^(-1/k))/p
}
