Summary: 0.1 Definitional Abuse
In my notes, I define the likelihood ratio as:
p(h1|e)
p(h2|e)
.
However, more commonly that is referred to as the posterior odds ratio,
and instead,
p(e|h1)
p(e|h2)
is defined as the likelihood ratio.
These are always related by Bayes Law through the following equation:
p(h1|e)
p(h2|e)
=
p(e|h1)
p(e|h2)

p(h1)
p(h2)
where p(h1)
