Abstract:The topic of inference in the linear mixed model. In this dissertation, best unbiased estimators are obtained for the parameters, as well as a test based on an unbiased estimator. Equivalence of hypotheses, sufficiency and F tests for variance components are also studied. Three examples of linear mixed models are used to apply the before mentioned results.
