## Abstract

Consider a linear regression model y _{t} = x _{t} β+u _{t} where the u _{t} 's are weakly dependent random variables, the x _{t} ,'s are known design nonrandom variables, and β is an unknown parameter. We define an M-estimator β _{n} of β corresponding to a smooth score function. Then, the second-order Edgeworth expansion for β _{n} is derived. Here we do not assume the normality of (u _{t} ), and (u _{t} ) includes the usual ARMA processes. Second, we give the second-order Edgeworth expansion for a transformation T(β _{n} ) of β _{n} . Then, a sufficient condition for T to extinguish the second-order terms is given. The results are applicable to many statistical problems.
