In this paper, we derive asymptotic expressions for the mean integrated squared error of a class of delta sequence density estimators for circular data. This class includes the class of kernel
Kernel density estimation for directional-linear data
NPCirc: An R Package for Nonparametric Circular Methods
A circular kernel density estimation procedure is provided, jointly with different alternatives for choosing the smoothing parameter, and a SiZer technique is developed for circular data, namely CircSiZer.
The proposal in this paper is based on detect an outlier in circular data by the local density factor (LDF) which is justified by the fact that it sum over a local neighborhood compared to the sum over the whole circular data commonly used to compute the kernel density estimate (KDE).
Nonparametric estimation of directional highest density regions
Highest density regions (HDRs) are defined as level sets containing sample points of relatively high density. Although Euclidean HDR estimation from a random sample, generated from the underlying
Nonparametric estimating equations for circular probability density functions and their derivatives
We propose estimating equations whose unknown parameters are the values taken by a circular density and its derivatives at a point. Specifically, we solve equations which relate local versions of
Central limit theorems for directional and linear random variables with applications
A central limit theorem for the integrated squared error of the directional-linear kernel density estimator is established. The result enables the construction and analysis of two testing procedures

Bootstrap choice of the smoothing parameter in kernel density estimation
SUMMARY Cross-validation based on integrated squared error has already been applied to the choice of smoothing parameter in the kernel method of density estimation. In this paper, an alternative
Contribution to the bandwidth choice for kernel density estimates
This paper focuses on the problem of the bandwidth choice for the kernel density estimates and the idea of maximal smoothing principle is extended to the higher order kernels.

Kernel density estimation with spherical data
SUMMARY We study two natural classes of kernel density estimators for use with spherical data. Members of both classes have already been used in practice. The classes have an element in common, but
Nonparametric circular methods for exploring environmental data
The goal of this work is to introduce nonparametric kernel methods for density and regression estimation for circular data, and illustrate their use by a brief simulation study and real data
