This article investigates a fast and stable method to solve Henderson's mixed model equation. The proposed algorithm is stable in that it avoids inverting a matrix of a large dimension and hence is free from the curse of dimensionality. This tactic is enabled through row operations performed on the design matrix.

A Unified Approach to Mixed Linear Models

Abstract The mixed model equations as presented by C. R. Henderson offers the base for a methodology that provides flexibility of fitting models with various fixed and random elements with the

That BLUP is a Good Thing: The Estimation of Random Effects

In animal breeding, Best Linear Unbiased Prediction, or BLUP, is a technique for estimating genetic merits. In general, it is a method of estimating random effects. It can be used to derive the
