Arguments

L2deriv

b

numeric; clipping bound under consideration.

risk

object of class "RiskType".

neighbor

object of class "Neighborhood".

biastype

object of class "BiasType" — the bias type with we work.

normtype

object of class "NormType" — the norm type with we work.

Distr

object of class "Distribution".

Finfo

Fisher information matrix.

DistrSymm

object of class "DistributionSymmetry".

z.start

initial value for the centering constant.

A.start

initial value for the standardizing matrix.

trafo

matrix: transformation of the parameter.

maxiter

the maximum number of iterations.

tol

the desired accuracy (convergence tolerance).

QuadForm

matrix of (or which may coerced to) class PosSemDefSymmMatrix for use of different (standardizing) norm

verbose

logical: if TRUE, some messages are printed.

nrvalpts

integer: number of evaluation points.

warn

logical: print warnings.

radius

radius of the neighborhood.

z

centering constant (in k-space)

A

standardizing matrix.

w

a weight of class "BdStWeight"

z.comp

logical vector: indicator which components of z need to be computed

A.comp

logical matrix: indicator which components of A need to be computed

IC

some IC of class "IC"

...

further arguments to be passed on E().

Details

.checkUpLow checks whether the given clipping height b lies in (b_min,b_max); .getUpperSol determines the upper case/classical solution and computes corresponding risks .getLowerSol determines the lower case (minimax bias) solution and computes corresponding risks .getLowUpB determines a search interval for b to given radius r, i.e., lower and upper bounds for (b_min,b_max) .isVirginW checks whether the (total variation) weight w in the argument has already been modified since creation (TRUE if not) .checkPIC checks whether (intermediate) results give a pIC .LowerCaseMultivariatefunction determines the Lagrange multipliers for the multivariate lower case solution for convex contamination by solving a corresponding dual problem (Rieder[94],p.199 eq.(18)). .LowerCaseMultivariatefunctionTV determines the Lagrange multipliers for the multivariate lower case solution for total variation in dimension p=1 and k>1 by solving a corresponding dual problem (Rieder[94],p.205 eq.(58)). .getSB computes the bias and (the square root of the trace of) the variance of the IC.

Value

.checkUpLow

a list with items up (logical) low (logical) and res a return list for getInfRobIC or NULL: if up is TRUE, res contains the upper case solution, if low is TRUE the lower case solution and if both low and up are FALSE NULL.

.getUpperSol

a return list for getInfRobIC

.getLowerSol

a return list for getInfRobIC

.checkUpLow

a list with items lower and upper (both numeric).

.isVirginW

TRUE or FALSE

.checkPIC

nothing is returned; precision values are issued.

.LowerCaseMultivariatefunction

a list with elements erg the return value of the corresponding call to optim, w the corresponding weight (of class HampelWeight), normtype the norm —possibly modified, z.comp the indices of non-null entries in z.

.LowerCaseMultivariatefunctionTV

a list with elements A the standardization matrix, b the minimax bias, w the corresponding weight (of class BdStWeight), a the corresponding infimum of the [p]IC.

.getSB

a list with elements s, (the square root of the trace of) the variance and b, the bias.
