# Bayesian hidden Markov modelling using circular‐linear general projected normal distribution

@article{Mastrantonio2014BayesianHM, title={Bayesian hidden Markov modelling using circular‐linear general projected normal distribution}, author={Gianluca Mastrantonio and Antonello Maruotti and Giovanna Jona-Lasinio}, journal={Environmetrics}, year={2014}, volume={26}, pages={145 - 158} }

We introduce a multivariate hidden Markov model to jointly cluster time‐series observations with different support, that is, circular and linear. Relying on the general projected normal distribution, our approach allows for bimodal and/or skewed cluster‐specific distributions for the circular variable. Furthermore, we relax the independence assumption between the circular and linear components observed at the same time. Such an assumption is generally used to alleviate the computational burden…
