In this paper, the shape matrix estimators based on spatial sign and rank vectors are considered. The estimators considered here are slight modifications of the estimators introduced in Dümbgen (1998) and Oja and Randles (2004) and further studied for example in Sirkiä et al. (2009). The shape estimators are computed using pairwise differences of the observed data, therefore there is no need to estimate the location center of the data. When the estimator is based on signs, the use of differences also implies that the estimators have the so called independence property if the estimator, that is used as an initial estimator, has it. The influence functions and limiting distributions of the estimators are derived at the multivariate elliptical case. The estimators are shown to be highly efficient in the multinormal case, and for heavy-tailed distributions they outperform the shape estimator based on sample covariance matrix.

Robustifying principal component analysis with spatial sign vectors Taskinen, Sara; Koch, Inge; Oja, Hannu (Elsevier, 2012)In this paper, we apply orthogonally equivariant spatial sign covariance matrices as well as their affine equivariant counterparts in principal component analysis. The influence functions and asymptotic covariance matrices ...
Influence functions and efficiencies of the canonical correlation and vector estimates based on scatter and shape matrices Taskinen, Sara; Croux, Christophe; Kankainen, Annaliisa; Ollila, Esa; Oja, Hannu (Elsevier, 2006)In this paper, the influence functions and limiting distributions of the canonical correlations and coefficients based on affine equivariant scatter matrices are developed for elliptically symmetric distributions. General ...
Dissociating spatial and letter-based word length effects observed in readers' eye movement patterns Hautala, Jarkko; Hyönä, Jukka; Aro, Mikko (Elsevier, 2011)In previous eye movement research on word length effects, spatial width has been confounded with the number of letters. McDonald (2006) unconfounded these factors by rendering all words in sentences in constant spatial ...
A more efficient second order blind identification method for separation of uncorrelated stationary time series Taskinen, Sara; Miettinen, Jari; Nordhausen, Klaus (Elsevier BV, 2016)The classical second order source separation methods use approximate joint diagonalization of autocovariance matrices with several lags to estimate the unmixing matrix. Based on recent asymptotic results, we propose a novel ...
