autoregressive process of first order; linear trend; Unbiased Bayes estimators; locally best unbiased; least squares estimators
The method of least wquares is usually used in a linear regression model $\bold {Y=X\beta+\epsilon}$ for estimating unknown parameters $\bold \beta$. The case when $\epsilon$ is an autoregressive process of the first order and the matrix $\bold X$ corresponds to a linear trend is studied and the Bayes approach is used for estimating the parameters $\bold \beta$. Unbiased Bayes estimators are derived for the case of a small number of observations. These estimators are compared with the locally best unbiased ones and with the usual least squares estimators.
