Some problems in estimation in mixed linear models
This thesis is concerned with the properties of classical estimators of the parameters in mixed linear models, the development of robust estimators, and the properties and uses of these estimators. The first chapter contains a review of estimation in mixed linear models, and a description of four data sets that are used to illustrate the methods discussed. In the second chapter, some results about the asymptotic distribution of the restricted maximum likelihood (REML) estimator of...[Show more]
