FMsmsnReg-package: Linear Regression Models with Finite Mixtures of Skew...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples


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.
