The Statistical Treatment of Orientation Data
- 110 Downloads
A short sketch will be given of the types of orientation data that have been described statistically. Some specific problems will be mentioned. An effort will be made to elicit new situations requiring statistical treatment. The discussion of past work indicates what can be done when a problem is formulated.
