## Function pgfpoisson

### Description

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

### Usage

```pgfpoisson(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 distribution, such that params<-theta.

## The function is currently defined as

pgfpoisson <- function(s,params) {
k<-s[abs(s)>1]
if (length(k)>0)
warning("At least one element of the vector s are out of interval [-1,1]")
if (missing(params))
stop("Distribution parameters are not defined")
theta<-params[1]
if (theta<=0)
stop ("Parameter of Poisson distribution must be positive")
exp(theta*(s-1))
}
