Abstract : The Memorandum develops an explicit formula for minimumvariance unbiased linear estimates pertinent to a description of the regression manifold, which is more general than the usual linear model. A review of GaussMarkov theory, projection theory, and pseudoinversion, all in a coordinatefree setting, is included at an introductory level. With the results contained in the review, the estimators for the generalized model are quickly and easily developed. (Author)
