Robustness in Parameter Estimation
Due to vagueness in the definition of robustness, there has been no natural transition between robust and nonparametric parameter estimators. In this work, qualitative ideas first expressed by Hampel  are extended in an effort to present a theory that unifies the nonparametric and robust concepts. Robustness is definied in a precise mathematical way that transists to nonparametricness naturally. As a result, some general constructive characteristics of robust estimators are studied.
