Thinking About Likelihood Ratios for Pattern Evidence

The likelihood ratio has been proposed as a logical way to summarize forensic evidence. In pattern evidence disciplines; however, the application of likelihood ratios is challenging because of the high-dimensional data involved and the lack of relevant probability models (among other issues).
