Description Objects from the Class Slots Extends Methods Author(s) References See Also Examples


This class, derived from the virtual class "CovRobust" accomodates Stahel-Donoho estimates of multivariate location and scatter.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("CovSde", ...), but the usual way of creating CovSde objects is a call to the function CovSde which serves as a constructor.
