The Geometric distribution is a discrete distribution bounded at 0 and unbounded on the high side. It is a special case of the Negative Binomial distribution. In particular, it is the direct discrete analog for the continuous Exponential distribution. The Geometric distribution has no history dependence, its probability at any value being independent of a shift along the axis.

The Geometric distribution has been used for inventory demand, marketing survey returns, a ticket control problem, and meteorological models.
