Trigonometric Moments

Description

Computes the specified order trigonometric moment for a set of directional data points.

Usage

1
trig.moment(x, p=1, center=FALSE)

Arguments

x

directional data set measured in radians.

p

order of trigonometric moment to be computed. Default is for a first order trigonometric moment.

center

logical flag whether to compute centered moments or not. Default is to compute an uncentered moment.

Value

Returns a data frame with variables mu.p, rho.p, cos.p, and sin.p, respectively the pth trigonometric moment's direction, resultant length, and real and imaginary components.
