Title: WeiSSVM model and its applications to cylindrical data
Authors: Toshihiro Abe - Nanzan University (Japan) [presenting]
Abstract: By focusing on cylindrical distributions, examples of cylindrical data are shown. After a brief review of probability distributions on the line and on the circle, we introduce WeiSSVM distribution. Using a statistical model of forest tree data in Finland, we demonstrate an application of the cylindrical distributions to quantify the factors that affect asymmetric crown expansion.
