# Struct rand_distr::Geometric

``pub struct Geometric { /* private fields */ }``
Expand description

The geometric distribution `Geometric(p)` bounded to `[0, u64::MAX]`.

This is the probability distribution of the number of failures before the first success in a series of Bernoulli trials. It has the density function `f(k) = (1 - p)^k p` for `k >= 0`, where `p` is the probability of success on each trial.

This is the discrete analogue of the exponential distribution.

Note that `StandardGeometric` is an optimised implementation for `p = 0.5`.

## Example

``````use rand_distr::{Geometric, Distribution};

let geo = Geometric::new(0.25).unwrap();
println!("{} is from a Geometric(0.25) distribution", v);``````

## Implementations§

Construct a new `Geometric` with the given shape parameter `p` (probability of success on each trial).

Returns a copy of the value. Read more
Performs copy-assignment from `source`. Read more
Formats the value using the given formatter. Read more
Deserialize this value from the given Serde deserializer. Read more
Generate a random value of `T`, using `rng` as the source of randomness.
Create an iterator that generates random values of `T`, using `rng` as the source of randomness. Read more

This method tests for `self` and `other` values to be equal, and is used by `==`. Read more
This method tests for `!=`. The default implementation is almost always sufficient, and should not be overridden without very good reason. Read more
