Delaporte: Statistical Functions for the Delaporte Distribution
Provides probability mass, distribution, quantile, random-variate
generation, and method-of-moments parameter-estimation functions for the
Delaporte distribution with parameterization based on Vose (2008)
<isbn:9780470512845>. The Delaporte is a discrete probability distribution
which can be considered the convolution of a negative binomial distribution
with a Poisson distribution. Alternatively, it can be considered a counting
distribution with both Poisson and negative binomial components. It has been
studied in actuarial science as a frequency distribution which has more
variability than the Poisson, but less than the negative binomial.
