ABSTRACT In this work, we deal with a bivariate time series of wind speed and direction. Our observed data have peculiar features, such as informative missing values, non-reliable measures under a specific condition and interval-censored data, that we take into account in the model specification. We analyse the time series with a non-parametric Bayesian hidden Markov model, introducing a new emission distribution, suitable to model our data, based on the invariant wrapped Poisson, the Poisson… 
The joint projected normal and skew-normal: A distribution for poly-cylindrical data
The joint projected and skew normal ; a distribution for poly-cylindrical data
A multivariate circular-linear distribution obtained by combining the projected and the skew normal is introduced, enabling a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm relying only on Gibbs steps, where the updates of the parameters are done as if the authors were working with a multivariate normal likelihood.
Recent advances in directional statistics
This paper provides a review of the many recent developments in the field since the publication of Mardia and Jupp (1999), still the most comprehensive text on directional statistics, and considers developments for the exploratory analysis of directional data.
Invariance properties and statistical inference for circular data
Statistical inference on the circle may strongly depend on the chosen reference system. Here, we introduce necessary and sufficient conditions to avoid inferential problems and misinterpretation of
Review on circular-linear regression models
This paper will review on circular-linear regression model by highlighting and exploring their benefits and limitations and with the growing body of literature regarding this issue, it is important to acknowledge these circular data characteristics.
A Blockchain Prediction Model on Time, Value, and Purchase Based on Markov Chain and Queuing Theory in Stock Trade
A preemption queuing model for multipriority service objects in the blockchain financial architecture according to different service priority is proposed and a queuing-based resource scheduling model is established by using the Markov chain to find the optimal solution.


A hidden Markov model for the analysis of cylindrical time series
A new hidden Markov model is proposed for the analysis of cylindrical time series, that is, bivariate time series of intensities and angles. It allows us to segment cylindrical time series according
Bayesian hidden Markov modelling using circular‐linear general projected normal distribution
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,
Markov-switching autoregressive models for wind time series
A Multivariate Hidden Markov Model for the Identification of Sea Regimes from Incomplete Skewed and Circular Time Series
The identification of sea regimes from environmental multivariate times series is complicated by the mixed linear–circular support of the data, by the occurrence of missing values, by the skewness of
Advantages of ARMA-GARCH wind speed time series modeling
The models are found using good statistical practice and are able to capture the most important characteristics of the data like distribution, time dependence structure and periodicity in a satisfying manner and offer several crucial advantages.
Hidden Markov models for circular and linear-circular time series
A hidden Markov model for bivariate linear-circular time series is introduced and used to describe larval movement of the fly Drosophila.
Spatial analysis of wave direction data using wrapped Gaussian processes
A model-based approach to handle periodic data in the case of measurements taken at spatial locations, anticipating structured dependence between these measurements, and formulates a wrapped Gaussian spatial process model for this setting.

The power and flexibility of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods to fit such classes of models to circular data and applications are given to multivariate and time series data of wind directions.
The wrapped skew Gaussian process for analyzing spatio-temporal data
A novel wrapped skew Gaussian process is proposed which enables more flexible marginal distributions than the symmetric ones arising under the wrappedGaussian process and it allows straightforward interpretation of parameters.
