Estimation and Testing in General Gauss-Markov Models

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


A general Gauss-Markov model is a model
$$Y = X\beta + e,E(e) = 0,Cov(e) = {\sigma ^2}V$$
, where V is a known matrix. Linear models can be divided into four categories depending on the assumptions made about V:
  1. (a)

    V is an identity matrix,

  2. (b)

    V is nonsingular,

  3. (c)

    V is possibly singular but C(X)⊂ C(V),

  4. (d)

    V is possibly singular.
