A negative_­binomial_­distribution random number distribution produces random integers distributed according to the discrete probability function

[Note: This implies that is undefined when p == 1. end note]

explicit negative_binomial_distribution(IntType k = 1, double p = 0.5);

Requires: and .

Effects: Constructs a negative_­binomial_­distribution object; k and p correspond to the respective parameters of the distribution.

IntType k() const;

Returns: The value of the k parameter with which the object was constructed.

double p() const;

Returns: The value of the p parameter with which the object was constructed.
