Unbiased modified likelihood ratio tests for simple and double separability of a variance–covariance structure
We present modified likelihood ratio tests (LRTs) for simple and double separability of a variance–covariance structure, unbiased in finite samples. The modification is a penalty-based homothetic transformation of the LRT statistic. Optimal penalties, depending on the mean model, contain novel information.
