Y-Sets is an application for statistical text analysis. In contrast to existing concordancers it allows the user performing intersection of two or more texts to find identical words and to get statistical information about their distribution. With the help of Y-Sets you can also get statistics about words that occur only in one text and don't appear in the other texts under analysis (differentiation function). Statistical information obtained with the help of Y-Sets can be further used for the purposes of text classification and authorship attribution, information retrieval, and plagiarism detection.

The application works on Windows machines and is distributed as freeware at .
