Some hints for statistical analysis of vector data

M. Brizzi & E. Carfagna
When performing quantitative analysis of some physical phenomena it is sometimes necessary to deal with vector data. This study concerns analytical and graphical repre-sentation of angular data, by mean of an extension of Beta distribution family, as well as spatial analysis of vector variables. Specifically, vector extensions of some well-known spatial interpolation methods are proposed, such as kriging and cokriging.
