Robust estimation : limit theorems and their applications
Clarke, Brenton Ross
This thesis is concerned with the asymptotic theory of general
M-estimators and some minimal distance estimators. Particular attention
is paid to uniform convergence theory which is used to prove limit
theorems for statistics that are usually implicitly defined as solutions
of estimating equations.
The thesis is divided into eight chapters and into three main
sections. In Section A the theory of convergence is studied as a prelude
to validating the use of the particular M-estimators...[Show more]
