Let $X_1, X_2, \dots, X_{30}$ be a random sample of size $n=30$ from a $N_5(μ, Σ)$ population. If B is a $2\times 5$ matrix $$ B = \begin{bmatrix} 1 & 0 & 1 & 0 & 1 \\ 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 1\end{bmatrix},$$ then what is the distribution of $B^\ast = B S B^T$, where $S$ is the variance-covariance matrix of sample observations?
