Probability mass function is a function that gives the probability
that a discrete random variable is exactly equal to some value.
:param data:
The PMF data in a form of list of tuples. Each tuple must contain
two items with the first item being the probability of the implied
random variable to take value of the second item.
There must be at least one tuple in the list. All probabilities
must sum up to 1 within the given precision.
The type of values (second items in tuples) is not strictly defined,
those can be objects of any (mixed or homogeneous) type.
:param epsilon:
the tolerance for the sum of the probabilities (default 1E-15)
:raises ValueError:
If probabilities do not sum up to 1 or there is zero or negative
probability.
NB: in the engine the sum is checked to be exactly one by using
Decimal numbers.
