Keywords:
unbalanced mixed linear model; variance components; Wald test; ANOVA-like test; Bartlett-Scheffé tests
Summary:
The paper presents some approximate and exact tests for testing variance components in general unbalanced mixed linear model. It extends the results presented by Seifert (1992) with emphasis on the computational aspects of the problem.
