A Penalized Trimmed Squares Method for Deleting Outliers in Robust Regression

We consider the problem of identifying multiple outliers in linear regression models. In robust regression the unusual observations should be removed from the sample in order to obtain better fitting for the rest of the observations. Based on the LTS estimate, we propose a penalized trimmed square estimator PTS, where penalty costs for discarding outliers … Read more

GRASP with path-relinking for the weighted maximum satisfiability problem

A GRASP with path-relinking for finding good-quality solutions of the weighted maximum satisfiability problem (MAX-SAT) is described in this paper. GRASP, or Greedy Randomized Adaptive Search Procedure, is a randomized multi-start metaheuristic, where at each iteration locally optimal solutions are constructed, each independent of the others. Previous experimental results indicate its effectiveness for solving weighted … Read more
