A general Gauss–Markov model is a model \({\rm Y}={\rm X}\beta + e,\quad {\rm E}(e) = 0,\quad {{\rm Cov}(e)}= \sigma^{2}{\rm V},\) where V is a known matrix. Linear models can be divided into four categories depending on the assumptions made about V: (a) V is an identity matrix, (b) V is nonsingular, (c) V is possibly singular but C(X) ⊂ C(V), (d) V is possibly singular.
