Abstract

A statistical model of the successive locations of an animal in the plane induces a statistical model of the relative positions of successive locations. A common locational model is that the Cartesian coordinates of successive locations in the plane are independent bivariate normal random variables. This note gives the statistical properties of the direction and length of the vector joining successive locations.
