Abstract

We establish an affine equivariant, constrained heteroscedastic model and criterion with trimming for clustering contaminated, grouped data. We show existence of the m.l.e., propose a method for determining an appropriate constraint, and design a strategy for finding reasonable partitions. We finally compute breakdown points of the estimated parameters thereby showing asymptotic robustness of the method.
