Abstract (technical / expert description):

This part of the project aims to provide a deeper understanding of the mathematical properties of methods for literary authorship attribution based on stylometric distance measures. Another focus is on the separation of author signal, genre signal and epoch signal which could be beneficial for an automatic genre classification. In addition, reliable statistical methods for testing the significance of the results need to be developed.
