Dear S-PLUSers,

I am running different simulations on a win95 machine (using v4.5) to
compare different robust estimators of shape.

Dr Rousseeuw suggests a small sample correction term for the MVE estimator
in a 1990 JASA paper (Unmasking Multivariate Outliers and Leverage
Points).

Is this (or some other) small sample correction term included in the
S-PLUS code for the MVE estimator ?

Cheers, Patrik
