Properties
Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodCumulant
Computes a cumulant of the distribution.
(Overrides UnivariateDistributionCumulant(Int32).)
Public methodEquals

(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExpectationValue
Computes the expectation value of an artibrary function.
(Inherited from DiscreteDistribution.)
Public methodGetHashCode

Public methodGetRandomValue
Produces a random integer drawn from the distribution.
(Inherited from DiscreteDistribution.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInverseLeftProbability
Computes the value corresponding to the given percentile.
(Overrides DiscreteDistributionInverseLeftProbability(Double).)
Public methodLeftExclusiveProbability
Computes the probability of obtaining a value less than the given value.
(Overrides DiscreteDistributionLeftExclusiveProbability(Int32).)
Public methodLeftInclusiveProbability
Computes the probability of obtaining a value less than or equal to the given value.
(Inherited from DiscreteDistribution.)
Public methodMoment
Gets a raw moment of the distribution.
(Overrides DiscreteDistributionMoment(Int32).)
Public methodMomentAboutMean
Gets a central moment of the distribution.
(Inherited from DiscreteDistribution.)
Public methodProbabilityMass
Returns the probability of the obtaining the given value.

Remarks

The probability of obtaining each integer value in a geometric distribution is lower than the probability of obtaining the previous value by a constant factor. The probability thus decreases geometricly with the value, giving the distribution its name.
