prob = theta/(theta+mu) and size = theta

Theta, however, is not an integer. So how can size (which is the number of successes) equal theta?

I know there is a function rnegbin which does what I want. I would still like to raise the above question (probably a more statistical one than R).

Thanks a lot for any comments.
