Modelling conditional probability distributions for periodic variables

Nabney, Ian T., Bishop, Christopher M. and Legleye, C. (1995). Modelling conditional probability distributions for periodic variables. IN: Fourth International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks. IEEE.

Abstract

Most of the common techniques for estimating conditional probability densities are inappropriate for applications involving periodic variables. In this paper we introduce two novel techniques for tackling such problems, and investigate their performance using synthetic data. We then apply these techniques to the problem of extracting the distribution of wind vector directions from radar scatterometer data gathered by a remote-sensing satellite.
