The estimation of coefficients in a simple regression model with autocorrelated errors is considered. The underlying distribution is assumed to be symmetric, one of Student's t family for illustration. Closed form estimators are obtained and shown to be remarkably efficient and robust. Skew distributions will be considered in a future paper.
