  author={Thomas Maullin-Sapey and Thomas E. Nichols},
  journal={Statistics and Computing},
The analysis of longitudinal, heterogeneous or unbalanced clustered data is of primary importance to a wide range of applications. The linear mixed model (LMM) is a popular and flexible extension of the linear model specifically designed for such purposes. Historically, a large proportion of material published on the LMM concerns the application of popular numerical optimization algorithms, such as Newton–Raphson, Fisher Scoring and expectation maximization to single-factor LMMs (i.e. LMMs that…

BLMM: Parallelised Computing for Big Linear Mixed Models
The “Big” Linear Mixed Models (BLMM) toolbox is described, an efficient Python package for large-scale fMRI LMM analyses designed for use on high performance computing clusters and utilizes a Fisher Scoring procedure made possible by derivations for the LMM Fisher information matrix and score vectors derived in the previous work.


Generalized Vectorization, Cross-Products, and Matrix Calculus
This book presents the reader with new operators and matrices that arise in the area of matrix calculus. The properties of these mathematical concepts are investigated and linked with zero-one
Random-effects models for longitudinal data.
A unified approach to fitting these models, based on a combination of empirical Bayes and maximum likelihood estimation of model parameters and using the EM algorithm, is discussed.

The BOBYQA algorithm for bound constrained optimization without derivatives
Most changes to the variables are an approximate solution to a trust region subproblem, using the current quadratic model, with a lower bound on the trust region radius that is reduced cautiously, in order to keep the interpolation points well separated until late in the calculation, which lessens damage from computer rounding errors.
