Description

Density for the Jones and Pewsey circular distribution.

Usage

1
djonespewsey(x, mu, kappa, psi)

Arguments

x

a vector. The object is coerced to class circular.

mu

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

kappa

non-negative concentration parameter of the distribution.

psi

real shape parameter.

Details

The JonesPewsey distribution has density

f(x)=[(\cosh(κψ) + \sinh(κψ)\cos(x-μ))^{1/ψ}] / [2π P_{1/ψ}(\cosh(κψ))],

for 0 <= x < 2 π, where P_{1/ψ}(.) is the associated Legendre function of the first kind, degree 1/ψ and order 0.

Value

The density
