Abstract:

A statistical analysis is made by use of the null hypothesis test for random samples which have been drawn from a population with the continuous distribution function Fx. It is useful for distributions on a circle since its value does not depend on the arbitrary point chosen to begin cumulating the probability density and the sample points. Sampling experiments on bird flight are plotted by use of an IBM 650 computer.
