probability_per_trial


Geometric distribution parameter

Specification

Alias: prob_per_trial

Argument(s): REALLIST

Description

The geometric distribution represents the number of successful trials that occur before a failure is observed.

The density function for the geometric distribution is given by:

\[f(x) = {p}{(1-p)^{x}}\]

where p is the probability of failure per trial and x is the number of successful trials.
