LD describes the associations among alleles at different loci. For anything more than two bi-allelic loci, you need more than just one number to fully describe the associations. For instance, if we have three bi-allelic loci 1-3, we need the three pairwise LD coefficients, plus one extra three-way coefficient. In general, if we have $K$ loci, and the ...


Being a typical molecular biologist, I am a little uncomfortable with classical genetics terms. I might redefine some symbols (perhaps to mean the same) [It is like talking to oneself while thinking]. There are four DNA-blocks : A1, B1, A2 and B2. Ak and Bk are adjacent blocks. [Perhaps this is same as what you defined the symbols as]. A and B are ...
