# GeomParameter-class

##### Class "GeomParameter"

The parameter of a geometric distribution, used by Geom-class

- Keywords
- distribution

##### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("GeomParameter", prob)`

.
Usually an object of this class is not needed on its own, it is generated
automatically when an object of the class Geom
is instantiated.

##### Slots

`prob`

Object of class

`"numeric"`

: the probability of a geometric distribution`name`

Object of class

`"character"`

: a name / comment for the parameters

##### Extends

Class `"Parameter"`

, directly.

##### Methods

- initialize
`signature(.Object = "GeomParameter")`

: initialize method- prob
`signature(object = "GeomParameter")`

: returns the slot`prob`

of the parameter of the distribution- prob<-
`signature(object = "GeomParameter")`

: modifies the slot`prob`

of the parameter of the distribution

##### Deprecated

The use of this class is deprecated; it is to be replaced by a corresponding use
of class `NbinomParameter`

with slot `size = 1`

which may be
generated, e.g. by
```
new("NbinomParameter", prob, size = 1,
name = "Parameter of a Geometric distribution")
```

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
## deprecated from 1.9 on
W <- new("GeomParameter",prob=0.5)
prob(W) # prob of this distribution is 0.5.
prob(W) <- 0.4 # prob of this distribution is now 0.4.
# }
```
