robust regression; the least trimmed squares; $\sqrt{n}$-consistency; asymptotic normality
Asymptotic normality of the least trimmed squares estimator is proved under general conditions. At the end of paper a discussion of applicability of the estimator (including the discussion of algorithm for its evaluation) is offered.
