Do we have a source for name[edit]

I've never heard it called the Kent distribution, and I worked with him. He did refer to the Complex-Bingham distributions which was one of his key papers, central to Procrustes analysis. --Salix alba (talk) 17:09, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Take a look at the title of the last reference, for example. BTW: The complex Bingham distribution is not the same distribution. Tomixdf 07:08, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
