Topics in Circular Statistics

Voorkant
World Scientific, 2001 - 336 pagina's
This research monograph on circular data analysis covers some recent advances in the field, besides providing a brief introduction to, and a review of, existing methods and models. The primary focus is on recent research into topics such as change-point problems, predictive distributions, circular correlation and regression, etc. An important feature of this work is the S-plus subroutines provided for analyzing actual data sets. Coupled with the discussion of new theoretical research, the book should benefit both the researcher and the practitioner. Contents: Circular Probability Distributions; Some Sampling Distributions; Estimation of Parameters; Tests for Mean Direction and Concentration; Tests for Uniformity; Nonparametric Testing Procedures; Circular Correlation and Regression; Predictive Inference for Directional Data; Outliers and Related Problems; Change-Point Problems; Miscellaneous Topics; Some Facts on Bessel Functions; How to Use the CircStats Package. Readership: Researchers and practitioners dealing with circular data.
