sufficient condition for admissibility; natural parameter space; general linear model; biased estimation
It was recently shown that all estimators which are locally best in the relative interior of the parameter set, together with their limits constitute a complete class in linear estimation, both unbiased and biased. However, not all these limits are admissible. A sufficient condition for admissibility of a limit was given by the author (1986) for the case of unbiased estimation in a linear model with the natural parameter space. This paper extends this result to the general linear model and to biased estimation.
