Abstract

A simulation study is used to examine the robustness of some estimators on a linearized nonlinear regression model with heteroscedastic errors, namely the Linearized Ordinary Least Squares (LOLS), Transformed Generalized Least Squares (TGLS) , Linearized Reweighted Least Squares (LRLS) and Transformed Linearized Reweighted Least Squares (TLRLS). The latter is a modification of Reweighted Least Squares (RLS) based on Least Median of Squares (LMS). The empirical evidence shows that the first three estimators are not sufficiently robust when the percentage of outliers in the data increases. That is, they do not have a high breakdown point. On the other hand, the modified estimator (TLRLS) has a higher breakdown point than the other three estimators.

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository is an on-line digital archive that serves as a central collection and storage of scientific information and research at the Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Currently, the collections deposited in the IR consists of Master and PhD theses, Master and PhD Project Report, Journal Articles, Journal Bulletins, Conference Papers, UPM News, Newspaper Cuttings, Patents and Inaugural Lectures.

As the policy of the university does not permit users to view thesis in full text, access is only given to the first 24 pages only.
