Abstract: Linear mixed models are increasingly being used to answer practical problems in several research areas. We consider the case in which the components of the random part of a linear mixed model follow a Weibull distribution. We obtain the moments and cumulants of this distribution and study how to derive their parameters. A simulation study is presented and discussed in some detail.
