The inverse of a numerator relationship matrix is needed for best linear unbiased prediction of breeding values. The purpose of this paper to is present a rapid and simple method for computation of the elements of this inverse without computing the relationship matrix itself. The method is particularly useful in non-inbred populations but is much faster than the conventional method in the presence of inbreeding.
