fitHeavyTail: Mean and Covariance Matrix Estimation under Heavy Tails

Robust estimation methods for the mean vector and covariance matrix from data (possibly containing NAs) under multivariate heavy-tailed distributions such as angular Gaussian, Cauchy, and Student's t. Additionally, a factor model structure can be specified for the covariance matrix. The package is based on the papers: Y. Sun, P. Babu, and D. P. Palomar (2014).
