Function pgfthomas

Description

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

Usage

pgfthomas(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 Thomas distribution, such that params<-c(lambda,theta), where both parameters are positive.

## The function is currently defined as

pgfthomas <- function(s,params) {

if (length(k)>0)
    warning("At least one element of the vector s are out of interval [-1,1]")
if (length(params)<2) 
    stop("At least one value in params is missing")
if (length(params)>2) 
    stop("The length of params is 2")
    lambda<-params[1]
    theta<-params[2]
if (lambda<=0)
    stop ("Parameter lambda must be positive")
if (theta<=0)
    stop ("Parameter theta must be positive")
exp(lambda*(s*exp(theta*(s-1))-1))
}
