    Robust automatic selection techniques for the smoothing parameter of a smoothing spline are introduced. They are based on a robust predictive error criterion and can be viewed as robust versions of C
    p and cross-validation. They lead to smoothing splines which are stable and reliable in terms of mean squared error over a large spectrum of model distributions.
