Von Mises distribution


#1

Hi,

We need the univariate von Mises distribution on the circle for a model that concerns angles (for protein structure prediction). The von Mises distribution does not seem to be provided currently by Edward/Tensorflow.

Before we start developing a von Mises class ourselves - is anybody working on this or does anybody have a working implementation? Any advice is welcome - notably on how to handle a periodic distribution such as the von Mises.

Thanks,

-Thomas
