Description

Density of the spherical Kent and ESAG distributions.

Usage

1
2
dkent(y, G, param, logden = FALSE )
desag(y, mu, gam, logden = FALSE)

Arguments

y

A matrix or a vector with the data expressed in Euclidean coordinates, i.e. unit vectors.

G

For the Kent distribution only, a 3 x 3 matrix whose first column is the mean direction. The second and third columns are the major and minor axes respectively.

param

For the Kent distribution a vector with the concentration κ and ovalness β parameters. The ψ has been absorbed inside the matrix G.

mu

The mean vector the ESAG distribution, a vector in R^3.

gam

The two gamma parameters of the ESAG distribution.

logden

If you the logarithm of the density values set this to TRUE.

Details

The density of the spherical Kent or spherical ESAG distribution is computed.

Value

A vector with the (log) density values of y.
