Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Density and random generation for the Cardioid circular distribution.

Usage

1
2
dcardioid(x, mu = circular(0), rho = 0)
rcardioid(n, mu = circular(0), rho = 0, control.circular=list())

Arguments

x

a vector. The object is coerced to class circular.

n

number of observations.

mu

mean direction of the distribution. The object is coerced to class circular.

rho

concentration parameter of the distribution. Absolute value of rho must be less than 0.5.

control.circular

the coordinate system used in the output of rcardioid. See circular for details.

Value

dcardioid gives the density and rcardioid generates random deviates.
