Probability distribution function with arctan

  1. Dec 15, 2008 #1
    Hi I have a function [tex]\phi =arctan(Y/X)[/tex] where, X[tex]\sim \mathcal{N}(A\cos \theta, v)[/tex] and Y[tex]\sim \mathcal{N}(A\sin \theta,v)[/tex]. I want to find
    pdf (probability distribution) of [tex]\phi [/tex]. Any suggestions ?
