rvonmises(n, mu, kappa, control.circular=list())
dvonmises(x, mu, kappa, log)
pvonmises(q, mu, kappa, from=NULL, tol = 1e-020)
qvonmises(p, mu = circular(0), kappa=NULL, from=NULL, tol = .Machine$double.eps^(0.6), 
  control.circular = list(), ...)

Arguments

x, q, p

a vector. The x and q objects are coerced to class circular.

n

number of observations.

mu

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

kappa

non-negative numeric value for the concentration parameter of the distribution.

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

from

if NULL is set to mu-pi. This is the value from which the pvonmises and qvonmises are evaluated. It should be a circular object.

tol

the precision in evaluating the distributon function or the quantile.

control.circular

the attribute of the resulting object.

...

parameters passed to integrate.

Value

dvonmises gives the density, pvonmises gives the distribution function, rvonmises generates random deviates and qvonmises provides quantiles.

Since version 0.3-5 the random deviates are generated using a C code.
