The paper illustrates a solution of the problem of choosing a root from estimating equations which have multiple roots. This solution is applicable also to multivariate parameter estimation. In the univariate parameter case, the consistency of the M -estimator is illustrated in a way which shows how other estimation methods can easily invoke the same technique. Multivariate parameter extensions are then indicated.
