Some algebraic and statistical properties of WLSEs
under a general growth curve model
Yongge Tian and Yoshio Takane
Growth curve models are used to analyze repeated
measures data (longitudinal data), which are functions
of time. General expressions of weighted least-squares
estimators (WLSEs) of parameter matrices were given
under a general growth curve model. Some algebraic and
statistical properties of the estimators are also derived
through the matrix rank method.
