PyCircStat: circular statistics with Python

This toolbox contains descriptive and inferential statistics for circular data.

Note: The toolbox is currently in development. Many functions are working, but many are yet to come. We encourage you to start using the toolbox and provide feedback on bugs, features you would like and so on.

Until there is a dedicated article describing the toolbox, please credit this web page.

Team: Philipp Berens, Fabian Sinz


The package can be installed via pip (pip might need to be replaced by pip3)

pip install pycircstat

You can also install it via

python install

To generate the documentation, run

python build_sphinx

An online documentation can be found on

Note that the call to sphinx' apidoc has still to be included.
