Thus, all one has to do is to determine the coeﬃcients in those linear functions. The following lemma may be helpful in this regard. 1. Let A be any symmetric matrix such that X AX = 0. 2) without the normality assumption, the coeﬃcient of σi2 in E(y Ay) is tr(AZi Zi ), 0 ≤ i ≤ s, where σ02 = τ 2 and Z0 = In . Proof. By Appendix C we have E(y Ay) = tr(AV ) + β X AXβ = tr(AV ), s s where V = i=0 σi2 Zi Zi . Thus, E(y Ay) = i=0 σi2 tr(AZi Zi ). 9, the coeﬃcient of σi2 is tr(PX ⊥ Zi Zi ), i = 1, 2 and the coeﬃcient of τ 2 is tr(PZ X ) = rank(W ) − rank(X).

1977) to compute the MLE. 1 for more details. The EM algorithm is known to converge slower than the Newton–Raphson procedure. For example, Thisted (1988, pp. 242) gave an example, in which the ﬁrst iteration of EM was comparable to four iterations of Newton–Raphson in terms of convergence speed; however, after the ﬁrst iteration, the EM ﬂattened and eventually converged in more than ﬁve times as many iterations as Newton–Raphson. On the other hand, the EM is more robust to initial values than the Newton–Raphson.

One such method is Gaussian-likelihood, or, as we call it, quasi-likelihood. The idea is to use normality-based estimators even if the data are not really normal. For the ANOVA models, the REML estimator of θ is deﬁned as the solution to the (Gaussian) REML equations, provided that the solution belongs to the parameter space. 8 for a discussion on how to handle cases where the solution is out of the parameter space. Similarly, the ML estimators of β and θ are deﬁned as the solution to the (Gaussian) ML equations, provided that they stay in the parameter space.
