keesmulder/flexcircmix: Fit Mixtures of Flexible Circular Distributions

Fit mixtures of flexible circular distributions, in particular with symmetric Batschelet distributions, which allow for sharp peaks and flat tops. A novel alternative to the inverse Batschelet distribution is implemented called the Power Batschelet distribution. Both frequentist and Bayesian inference is implemented, through the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm, the bootstrap, and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods.
