Abstract: Variable selection in the presence of outliers may be performed by using a robust version of Akaike's information criterion (AIC). In this paper, explicit expressions are obtained for such criteria when S- and MM-estimators are used. The performance of these criteria is compared with the existing AIC based on M-estimators and with the classical non-robust AIC. In a simulation study and in data examples, we observe that the proposed AIC with S and MM-estimators selects more appropriate models in case outliers are present.
