Author discrimination consists of checking whether two texts are written by the same author or not. [...] Key Method Thus, three series of experiments are done and commented on. The first series of experiments analyses the two books in a global form (the text of every book is analyzed as a unique big text). It concerns nine different experiments. The second series of experiments analyses the two books in a segmental form (four different segments of text are extracted from every book). It concerns five different…Expand

Disjointed letters, also called disconnected, opening, or muqattaat letters, (in Arabic: ةعطقلما فورحلا) are characters that are put in the beginning of some chapters of the holy Qur’an, and which
Computational and natural language processing based studies of hadith literature: a survey
All major works that have addressed the subject of hadith through various computational and NLP methods are surveyed, grouping them under three categories: hadith content-based studies, narration- based studies, and overall studies.
Fusion Based Authorship Attribution-Application of Comparison Between the Quran and Hadith
In this paper, we conduct an investigation of automatic authorship attribution on seven Arabic religious books, namely: the holy Quran, Hadith and five other books, by using two fusion techniques.
A Comparative Survey of Authorship Attribution on Short Arabic Texts

A survey of modern authorship attribution methods
A survey of recent advances of the automated approaches to attributing authorship is presented, examining their characteristics for both text representation and text classification.
Computer-Based Authorship Attribution Without Lexical Measures
This paper presents a fully-automated approach to the identification of the authorship of unrestricted text that excludes any lexical measure and adapts aset of style markers to the analysis of the text performed by an already existing natural language processing tool using three stylometric levels.

This review shows that the authorship attribution discipline is quite successful, even in difficult cases involving small documents in unfamiliar and less studied languages; it further analyzes the types of analysis and features used and tries to determine characteristics of well-performing systems, finally formulating these in a set of recommendations for best practices.
Author Identification on the Large Scale
This paper focuses on techniques for identifying authors in large collections of textual artifacts (e-mails, communiques, transcribed speech, etc.).
Discriminating the registers and styles in the Modern Greek language
Diglossia information has not been shown sufficient to distinguish among individual styles within one register, and a large number of linguistic features need to be studied with methods such as discriminant analysis in order to obtain a high degree of discrimination accuracy.
Short Text Authorship Attribution via Sequence Kernels, Markov Chains and Author Unmasking: An Investigation
An investigation of recently proposed character and word sequence kernels for the task of authorship attribution based on relatively short texts suggests that when using a realistic setup that takes into account the case of texts which are not written by any hypothesised authors, the amount of training material has more influence on discrimination performance than the amounts of test material.
