Title: MANOVA in block compound symmetry setting
Authors: Ivan Zezula - P.J. Safarik University (Slovakia) [presenting]
Abstract: A multivariate linear normal model with block exchangeable covariance structure is considered. Such a structure can be naturally implied by the design of the experiment. Its main advantage is strongly reduced number of the second order parameters, which allows mean testing even with a small sample size. The problem of simultaneous testing of equality of mean values of several populations sharing the covariance structure will be considered.
