Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'mwondering what's the difference between least squares method with least absolute deviation method.

Assume we have y=ax+b+s where s isdeviation.

Is the step to calculate even a and b is different.

I read that those two methods are almost the same but hardly found a real good explaination about LAD.

Thank you
