Robust Regression: Analysis and Applications characterizes robust estimators in terms of how much they weigh. Each observation discusses generalized properties of LP-estimators. It includes an algorithm for identifying outliers using least absolute value criterion, in regression modelling reviews re-descending M-estimators studies Li linear regres
