The Time-Varying (Right-Truncated) Geometric Distribution

Probability mass (d), distribution (p), quantile (q), and random number generating (r and rt) functions for the time-varying right-truncated geometric (tvgeom) distribution. Also provided are functions to calculate the first and second central moments of the distribution. The tvgeom distribution is similar to the geometric distribution, but the probability of success is allowed to vary at each time step, and there are a limited number of trials. This distribution is essentially a Markov chain, and it is useful for modeling Markov chain systems with a set number of time steps.
