rotations: Working with Rotation Data

Tools for working with rotational data, including simulation from the most commonly used distributions on SO(3), methods for different Bayes, mean and median type estimators for the central orientation of a sample, confidence/credible regions for the central orientation based on those estimators and a novel visualization technique for rotation data. Most recently, functions to identify potentially discordant (outlying) values have been added. References: Bingham, Melissa A. and Nordman, Dan J. and Vardeman, Steve B.
