Circular-linear correlation

Description

It calculates the squared correlation between a circular and one or more linear variables.

Usage

circlin.cor(theta, x, rads = FALSE)

Arguments

theta

The circular variable.

x

The linear variable or a matrix containing many linear variables.

rads

If the circualr variable is in rads, this should be TRUE and FALSE otherwise.

Details

The squared correlation between a circular and one or more linear variables is calculated.

Value

A matrix with as many rows as linear variables including:

R-squared

The value of the squared correlation.

p-value

The p-value of the zero correlation hypothesis testing.
