MM.estimate(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
MM.estimate(x, u, c = 4.685, ...)

huber.estimate(x, ...)

## Default S3 method:
huber.estimate(x, u, k= 1.345, ...)

Arguments

x

numeric vector of mean values for groups

u

numeric vector of standard deviations or standard uncertainties associated with the values x

c, k

Tuning parameters passed to other functions (see rlm)

...

Parameters passed to other functions.

Details

These functions are wrappers for robust estimation using rlm. All simply call rlm with the formula x~1 and weights 1/u^2.

Value

An object of class ‘loc.est’.
