Forensic Document Examiners (FDEs) conduct handwriting analysis through their training and years of experience by recognizing the critical characteristics of writing to evaluate the evidence of writership. In recent years, there have been incentives to further investigate how to quantify the similarity between two written documents as a tool to support the conclusions drawn by FDEs. In the field, there are many situations in which it is difficult or impossible to have access to writing samples from all the potential writers. This research is an extension of previous work that evaluated writership within a closed set to an open set.
