Non-contemporaneous speech samples from 27 male speakers of Australian English were compared in a forensic likelihood-ratio framework. Parametric curves (polynomials and discrete cosine transforms) were fitted to the formant trajectories of the diphthongs a, e, o, a, and . The estimated coefficient values from the parametric curves were used as input to a generative multivariate-kernel-density formula for calculating likelihood ratios expressing the probability of obtaining the observed difference between two speech samples under the hypothesis that the samples were produced by the same speaker versus under the hypothesis that they were produced by different speakers. Cross-validated likelihood-ratio results from systems based on different parametric curves were calibrated and evaluated using the log-likelihood-ratio cost function (Cllr). The cross-validated likelihood ratios from the best-performing system for each vowel phoneme were fused using logistic regression. The resulting fused system had a very low error rate, thus meeting one of the requirements for admissibility in court.
