Description
This command selects an objective function that corresponds to a Cauchy or
Lorentzian distribution, i.e., the probability density function of the
residuals r reads:
This distribution exhibits more extensive tails compared to the normal distribution, and leads therefore to a more robust estimation if outliers are present. The objective function to be minimized is given by the following equation:
with
This objective function can bE minimized using the standard LevenbergMarquardt algorithm which is designed for a quadratic objective function. The objective function can be reasonably well approximated by a quadratic function, so that the LevenbergMarquardt algorithm is usually quite efficient.
