What is the probability that two given texts were written by the same author? This was achieved by posing an alternative null hypothesis H0 (“both texts were written by the same author”) and attempting to reject it by conducting a relevant experiment. If its outcome was unlikely (P ≤ 0.2), we rejected the H0 and concluded that the documents were written by two individuals. Alternatively, if the occurrence of H0 was probable (P > 0.2), we remained agnostic.

Ahhh, so horrible. The larger research claims might be correct, I have no idea. But I hate to see such crude statistical ideas being used, it’s like using a pickaxe to dig for ancient pottery.
