Abstract

A generalization of the von Mises distribution, which is broad enough to cover unimodality as well as multimodality, symmetry as well as asymmetry of circular data, is discussed here. We study this distribution in some detail and discuss its many features, some inferential and computational aspects, and provide some important results including characterization properties for this distribution. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
