New Approximations to the von Mises Distribution

Abstract

Improved normal approximations to the von Mises distribution are obtained as asymptotic series and compared with previous approximations. A fourth order normal approximation complements backwards recursive summation of a series in terms of modified Bessel functions for evaluation of the distribution to high accuracy.
