Linear model with variances depending on the mean value. (English) Zbl 0764.62055
Let \((Y,X\beta,\Sigma)\) be a linear regression model. The result of the observations is a realization of a random vector \(Y_{n,1}\), whose mean value is \(E_ \beta Y=X\beta\), \(X_{n,k}\) is a known design matrix, \(\beta_{k,1}\in R^ k\) the vector of unknown parameters, the covariance matrix of the vector \(Y\) depends on \(\beta\), \[ \Sigma=\sigma^ 2\Sigma(\beta)=\text{diag}(\sigma^ 2(a+b| e_ i' X\beta|^ 2))_{1\leq i\leq n}, \] where \(\sigma^ 2\), \(a\) and \(b\) are known positive constants, and \(e_ i'\) is the transpose of the \(i\)th unity vector.
The \(\beta_ 0\)-locally best linear unbiased estimator of a linear function of the parameter \(\beta\) is obtained.
