### Abstract

A multivariate normal statistical model defined by the Markov pr er deter-- by an acyclic digric admits ar- efactorof its likelihood function (LF) into the pr duct of conditional LFs, eachfactor having the for of a classical multivar - linear rear-- model (# MANOVA model).Her these modelsar extended in anatur way tonor linear rear-- models whose LFs continue to admit suchr- efactor--r frr which maximum likelihoodestimator and likelihoodr (LR) test statistics can beder ed by classical linear methods. The centrdistr -- of the LR test statisticfor testing one such multivariv- norv linear rear model against another isder ed, and there- of theseresesion models to block-r-- enor linear systems is established. It is shown how a collection of nonnested dependentnor linear rear-- models (# seemingly unringly ringly- can be combined into a single multivariv- norvlinear rn grear model by imposing apar-- set of graphical Markov (# conditional independence) restrictions.
