Description

Circurlar correlations between two circular variables.

Usage

3
circ.cor1(theta, phi, pvalue = FALSE)

circ.cors1(theta, phi, pvalue = FALSE)

Arguments

theta

The first cirular variable expressed in radians, not degrees.

phi

The other cirular variable. In the case of "circ.cors1" this is a matrix with many circular variables. In either case, the values must be in radians, not degrees.

pvalue

If you want the p-value of the zero correlation hypothesis testing set this to TRUE, otherwise leave it FALSE.

Details

Correlation for circular variables using the cosinus and sinus formula of Jammaladaka and SenGupta (1988).

Value

If you set pvalue = TRUE, then for the "circ.cor1" a vector with two values, the correlation and its associated p-value, otherwise the correlation only. For the "circ.cors1", either a vector with the correlations only or a matrix with two columns, the correlation and the p-values.
