  • The contribution of this work is the introduction of a multivariate circular-linear (or poly- cylindrical) distribution obtained by combining the projected and the skew-normal. We show the flexibility of our proposal, its property of closure under marginalization and how to quantify multivariate dependence. Due to a non-identifiability issue that our proposal inherits from the projected normal, a compu- tational problem arises. We overcome it in a Bayesian framework, adding suitable latent… CONTINUE READING
