ConvexHullMedian[{{x1, y1}, ..., {xn, yn}}]
estimates the median to be the mean of the bivariate data points lying on the innermost layer of the convex layers of the data.
  • ConvexHullMedian repeatedly removes the convex hull from the data until 3 or fewer data points remain.
  • The option EstimateDOF->True may be used to include the number of points lying on the innermost convex layer. The default setting is False.
