Best linear unbiased prediction when error vector is correlated with other random vectors in the model


, : Best linear unbiased prediction when error vector is correlated with other random vectors in the model. Genetique, Selection, Evolution 15(3): 395-400

Non-zero covariances between random factors of a linear model with the residual or error vector can be handled with best linear unbiased prediction techniques. An equivalent model for describing y in which the covariances between random vectors wiht residual vectors are zero is the key to the solution. Computational difficulties depend on the structure of the covariance matrix. An example is used to illustrate the calculations.
