Abstract: This paper approachs the new estimator for variance components in mixed linear models with an arbitrary number of variance components, called sub-d. This estimator was deduced and tested in random 'one-way' and 'two-way' nested and crossed designs with balanced or unbalanced data, by Silva (2017); specifically, this paper aims to give the sub-d explicit formula for the two variance components in random 'one-way' designs, ensuring their existence through consistent theoretical results. In order to derive the explicit above announced formula, we propose and prove some robust algebraic results. A numerical example where both variance components are estimated is given.

Keywords: orthogonal matrix; sub-d; one-way designs; variance components.
