A new REML (PX)EM algorithm for linear mixed models and factor analytic mixed models

Diffey, Simon Malcolm

Description

Linear mixed models and factor analytic mixed models are routinely applied to biological data arising from designed experiments. The preferred method for estimating the parameters associated with these models is residual maximum likelihood (REML). Most statistical software packages available for the REML estimation of parameters associated with linear mixed models and factor analytic mixed models implement a Newton-Raphson type algorithm such as the expected information algorithm or the...[Show more]
