Function pgfpoissonlindley

Description

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

Usage

```pgfpoissonlindley(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-Lindley distribution, such that params<-theta.

## The function is currently defined as

pgfpoissonlindley <- 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 (length(params)>1)
stop("The length of params is 1")
theta<-params[1]
if (theta<=0)
stop ("Parameter lambda must be positive")
theta^2*(theta+2-s)/((theta+1)*(theta+1-s)^2)
}
