On estimation in multilevel models with block circular symmetric covariance structure
Keywords: circular block symmetry, constrained model, patterned covariance matrix, explicit maximum likelihood estimator, multilevel model
In this article we consider a multilevel model with block circular symmetric covariance structure. Maximum likelihood estimation of the parameters of this model is discussed. We show that explicit maximum likelihood estimators of variance components exist under certain restrictions on the parameter space.
