Robust Estimation Using Heavy-Tailed Distributions

Functions to perform robust estimation considering heavy-tailed distributions. Currently, the package includes routines for linear regression, linear mixed-effect models, Grubbs' model, multivariate location and scatter estimation, multivariate regression, penalized splines, random variate generation and some support functions.
