The results of estimated percentage relative efficiencies in the comparable sample sizes in (Table 6) showed the inferior performance of usual estimators under srswordueto the larger variances of the networks of the variable of study.
In random regression models using non-linear parametric functions and Legendre polynomials, the residual variances can be considered homogeneous or heterogeneous throughout lactation.
Initially Levene's F test for equality of variances is seen.
Since standard deviation is simply the square root of variance, all we really have are weights, variances and correlations.
