'Outlier resistance in small samples'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

H. A. David and C. C. Yang, Iowa State University, have noted the following points. The author does not stay with his own definition of DT(n, q) but in fact usesDT(n,q)=E{T(z1,,ċċċ,zn-q, ∞,...,∞)}.Even with this change the proof of the theorem on p. 176 is in error since the combinatorial term associated with δn-r should be(n-qn-r),not(n-qr).However, since δn-r = δn-q, the theorem follows directly from Case 2 of David & Groeneveld (1982), and has essentially been proved by Sen (1985, pp. 309-11).
