# Linear Regression Models with Finite Mixtures of Skew Heavy-Tailed Errors

### Description

This package contains a principal function that performs to estimate the parameters of a regression model considering an error that follows a finite mixture of Skew Heavy-Tailed Errors, using an analytically simple and efficient EM-type algorithm for iteratively computing maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters.
