We shold not be fixated in the form of s but rather its coefficients.
To generate the coefficients of 1,1,1,1,1,1, the generating function is:
Thanks for reading.
Why this is a useful definition is another mater, and the answer to that is
its usefully properties (you should also note that it encapsulates all the
information in the pmf). Some of the properties that are of use can be found
You should note that this is a z-transform of the pmf, which is the
discrete analogue of the Laplace transform, which of course with a bit
of jiggery-pokery gives the moment generating function for a continuous
