We introduce panel models and identify its link to spatial-temporal models. Both models are characterized and differentiated through the variance-covariance matrix of the disturbance term. The resulting estimates or tests are as complicated as the nature of the said variance-covariance matrix. Some iterative methods typically used in computational statistics are also presented. These methods are used in conducting statistical inference for spatial-temporal models.
