Combining theory, methodology, and applications in a unified survey, this important reference/text presents the most recent results in robust regression analysis, including properties of robust regression techniques, computational issues, forecasting, and robust ridge regression. It provides useful case studies so that students and engineers can apply these techniques to forecasting, quantitative business analysis, econometrics, marketing, statistics, and demand modeling. Robust Regression: Analysis and Applications characterizes robust estimators in terms of how much they weight each observation ... discusses generalized properties of L[subscript p]-estimators ... includes an algorithm for identifying outliers using least absolute value criterion in regression modeling ... reviews redescending M-estimators ... studies L[subscript 1] linear regression ... proposes the best linear unbiased estimators for fixed parameters and random errors in the mixed linear model ... summarizes known properties of L[subscript 1] estimators for time series analysis ... examines ordinary least squares, latent root regression, and a robust regression weighting scheme ... and evaluates results from five different robust ridge regression estimators. Containing 120 tables and diagrams plus numerous bibliographic citations, Robust Regression: Analysis and Applications is the leading reference for applied statisticians, operations researchers, econometricians, marketing forecasters, business administration and management scientists, and industrial engineers as well as a text for graduate statistics or economics courses.
