The Forward Search Algorithm is a statistical algorithm for obtaining robust
estimators of regression coefficients in the presence of outliers. The algorithm
selects a succession of subsets of observations from which the parameters are
estimated. The present note shows how the theory of empirical processes can
contribute to the understanding of how the subsets are chosen and how the
sequence of estimators is changing.
