Robust Sequential Prediction in Linear Regression with Student's t-distribution


The Predictive Least Squares (PLS) model selection criterion is known to be consistent in the context of linear regression. For small sample sizes, however, it can exhibit erratic behavior. We show that this shortcoming can be amended by incorporating a Student’s t-distribution into PLS. The resulting criterion is shown to be asymptotically equivalent to… (More)
