I would suggest adding a note to the documentation stating clearly that 
the parameter should be nonzero.  The documentation is also unclear on 
whether a negative parameter value is permitted, although the current code 
works exactly the way that I'd expect for a negative parameter.

If a negative parameter is permitted then the last sentence of the 
docstring:

"""... Returned values range from 0 to positive infinity."""

is inaccurate, since values range from 0 to negative infinity in that 
case.  If it's not supposed to be permitted then perhaps the docstring 
should mention that the parameter should be positive?
