In the last four decades statistics has seen the emergence and consolidation of many competitors of the Least Square estimator of β of (1.1.1). The most prominent are the so-called M- and R- estimators. The class of M-estimators was introduced by Huber (1973) and its computational aspects and some robustness properties are available in Huber (1981). The class of R-estimators is based on the ideas of Hodges and Lehmann (1963) and has been developed by Adichie (1967), Jurečková (1971) and Jaeckel (1972).
