dvmf(y, k, mu, logden = FALSE )
iagd(y, mu, logden = FALSE)
dpurka(y, a, theta, logden = FALSE)

Arguments

y

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

k

The concentration parameter of the von Mises-Fisher distribution.

a

The concentration parameter of the Purkayastha distribution.

mu

The mean direction (unit vector) of the von Mises-Fisher distribution or the mean direction of the IAG distribution.

theta

The median direction for the Purkayastha distribution.

logden

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

Details

The density of the von Mises-Fisher, of the IAG or of the Purkayastha distribution is computed.

Value

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