There is a book published in the SBL Dissertation Series (#120) by

Kenneth J. Neumann, _The Authenticity of the Pauline Epistles in the

Light of Stylostatistical Analysis_, in which the use of statistical

analysis is used to determine the authenticity of the disputed Pauline

letters. Neumann arrives at the conclusion that "All disputed letters .

. . are assigned to the Pauline group." Interestingly, in the initial

acknowledgements section Neumann thanks a professor in the Dept. of

Mathematics "who made himself available on several occasions for

consultation on the statistical procedures."

Anyone with interest in the area of statistics and mathematical

probability may want to take a look this work.
