Stat 6520 Linear models


This course deals with finite dimensional vector spaces and matrix algebra concepts, generalized inverses of matrices, multivariate normal distribution, distributions of quadratic forms in normal random vectors, estimability and estimation under linear restrictions, testing linear hypotheses.


An undergraduate course in linear algebra or authorisation by the instructor.
