Tri-variate ‘angular’ data set approximately distributed according to a multivariate extremes angular distribution


The data set is constructed from coordinates (columns) 1,2,3 of frechetdat. It contains 100 angular points corresponding to the tri-variate vectors V=(X,Y,Z) with largest L^1 norm (||V||=X+Y+Z). The angular points are obtained by ‘normalizing’: e.g., x=X/||V||. Thus, each row in Leeds is a point on the two-dimensional simplex : x+y+z=1.
