So suggests this article on _Ars Technica_:

Computerized statistical studies of texts to determine authorship are relatively
old news, so I'm surprised they're only now getting around to Beowulf.

My immediate reaction to the Subject: line was, "Well, of course

Interesting; bookmarked. Thanks for posting it.
