Robust estimation : limit theorems and their applications
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]
