Mardia, KV, Hughes, G, Taylor, CC et al. (1 more author) (2008) A Multivariate von Mises Distribution with Applications to Bioinformatics. Canadian Journal of Statistics, 36 (1). 99 - 109 . ISSN 0319-5724
Motivated by problems of modelling torsional angles in molecules, Singh, Hnizdo & Demchuk (2002) proposed a bivariate circular model which is a natural torus analogue of the bivariate normal distribution and a natural extension of the univariate von Mises distribution to the bivariate case. The authors present here a multivariate extension of the bivariate model of Singh, Hnizdo & Demchuk (2002). They study the conditional distributions and investigate the shapes of marginal distributions for a special case. The methods of moments and pseudo-likelihood are considered for the estimation of parameters of the new distribution. The authors investigate the efficiency of the pseudo-likelihood approach in three dimensions. They illustrate their methods with protein data of conformational angles.
