A spectral form of the dispersion model in designs with arbitrarily unequal block sizes. (English) Zbl 0758.62033
Summary: Under a usual additive mixed model, a spectral decomposition is given to each observed vector \(Y\) from a class of block designs with arbitrarily unequal block sizes. As a result, an analysis of variance, in the sense defined by F. A. Graybill and R. A. Hultquist [Ann. Math. Stat. 32, 261-269 (1961; Zbl 0109.375)] and T. P. Speed [Ann. Stat. 15, 885-941 (1987; Zbl 0637.62070)], exists for such a design. The intrablock anova is discussed. Furthermore based on the dispersion structure, it is seen that the unbalancedness forces some useful information beyond the intrablock analysis, and even interblock comparisons. Let a group be a set of observations from the blocks of same size, a further decomposition of the spectral form provides an intergroup comparison which completes the anova of such designs.
