I'm sorry, but I don't have any references for you. The model is
standard. Check in Cheng & Van Ness, Statistical Regression with
Measurement Error, Wiley, 1999, ISBN 978-0-340-61461-7.

The weighted least squares estimates can also be characterized
as maximum likelihood or minimum Mahalanobis distance estimates.

The estimates are obtained by alternating least squares:
estimate {a,b} given z, estimate z given {a,b}, ... .

The jackknifed estimate of the regression parameters, and the
corresponding estimate of their covariance matrix, are also standard.

Check with your department regarding the form in which material from
the internet should be cited. (My department follows APA format, which
is very specific about such things, and our university library checks
all theses meticulously to make sure they follow all the picky rules.)
