Pseudo Expectation Problem Set
In L. R. Schaeffer, Pseudo Expectation Approach to Variance Component
Estimation, 1986, Journal of Dairy Science, 69, 2884-2889
an alternative estimator for variance components is described.
- What are quadratic forms being proposed?
- What is a "Pseudo Expectation"? What is the difference between
the "Pseudo Expectation" and the actual expectation when the
estimated variance are equal to the true variances?
- In Proc IML implement the "Pseudo Expectation"
approach using both the "Pseudo Expectation" and the actual
- Return estimates of the standard errors.
