Class "Geom"

The geometric distribution with prob $= p$ has density $$p(x) = p {(1-p)}^{x}$$ for $x = 0, 1, 2, \ldots$ C.f. rgeom

Keywords
distribution
Note

Working with a computer, we use a finite interval as support which carries at least mass 1-getdistrOption("TruncQuantile").

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form Geom(prob). This object is a geometric distribution.

Extends

Class "DiscreteDistribution", directly. Class "Nbinom", directly. Class "UnivariateDistribution", by class "DiscreteDistribution". Class "Distribution", by class "DiscreteDistribution".

Contains-Relations

By means of a contains argument in the class declaration, R ``knows'' that a distribution object obj of class "Geom" also is a negative Binomial distribution with parameters size = 1, prob = prob(obj)

Examples
G <- Geom(prob = 0.5) # G is a geometric distribution with prob = 0.5.
r(G)(1) # one random number generated from this distribution, e.g. 0
d(G)(1) # Density of this distribution is 0.25 for x = 1.
p(G)(1) # Probability that x<1 is 0.75.
q(G)(.1) # x = 0 is the smallest value x such that p(G)(x) >= 0.1.
prob(G) # prob of this distribution is 0.5.
prob(G) <- 0.6 # prob of this distribution is now 0.6.
