28.5.9.3.3 Class template geometric_distribution[rand.dist.bern.geo]

A geometric_distribution random number distribution produces integer values i  ≥ 0 distributed according to the discrete probability function
namespace std { template<class IntType = int> class geometric_distribution { public: // types using result_type = IntType; using param_type = unspecified; // constructors and reset functions geometric_distribution() : geometric_distribution(0.5) {} explicit geometric_distribution(double p); explicit geometric_distribution(const param_type& parm); void reset(); // equality operators friend bool operator==(const geometric_distribution& x, const geometric_distribution& y); // generating functions template<class URBG> result_type operator()(URBG& g); template<class URBG> result_type operator()(URBG& g, const param_type& parm); // property functions double p() const; param_type param() const; void param(const param_type& parm); result_type min() const; result_type max() const; // inserters and extractors template<class charT, class traits> friend basic_ostream<charT, traits>& operator<<(basic_ostream<charT, traits>& os, const geometric_distribution& x); template<class charT, class traits> friend basic_istream<charT, traits>& operator>>(basic_istream<charT, traits>& is, geometric_distribution& x); }; }
explicit geometric_distribution(double p);
Preconditions: .
Remarks: p corresponds to the parameter of the distribution.
double p() const;
Returns: The value of the p parameter with which the object was constructed.
