Title: Models for cylindrical data and their applications
Authors: Toshihiro Abe - Nanzan University (Japan) [presenting]
Abstract: Recent cylindrical models are reviewed. The WeiSSVM model has numerous good properties, such as simple normalizing constant and hence very tractable density, parameter-parsimony and interpretability, maximum entropy characterization, good circular-linear dependence structure, easy random number generation thanks to known marginal/conditional distributions, and flexibility illustrated via excellent fitting abilities. We also review some other related models. As an illustrative example, some of the models are applied in analyses of cylindrical data set.
