Role of the papadakis estimator in one- and two-dimensional field trials

N. R. Draper, D. Faraggi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Field trials when observations are correlated with those in neighbouring or nearby plots in one dimension are examined. The relationships between maximum likelihood solutions and the well-known Papadakis estimator are clarified and it is shown that the Papadakis estimator is appropriate under one covariance assumption but not others.
