On Introducing Asymmetry into Circular Distributions

Dale Umbach, S. Rao Jammalamadaka

Abstract


We give a brief history of the results which led to the introduction of asymmetry into symmetric circular distributions. This is followed by the presentation of another method of introducing asymmetry. Some properties of the induced distributions are studied. Finally, this new distribution is shown to be a reasonable fit to the Jander ant data as presented in Fisher (1993).
