The rapid growth of the Internet has resulted in enormous amounts of information that has become more difficult to access efficiently. Internet users require tools to help manage this vast quantity of information. The primary goal of this research is to create an efficient and effective tool that is able to summarize large documents quickly. This research presents a linear time algorithm for calculating lexical chains which is a method of capturing the “aboutness” of a document. This method is…

Summarizing Text Using Lexical Chains
TLDR
A better algorithm using lexical chain computation is presented which makes lexical chains a computationally feasible for the user and which will generate a summary which is much more effective compared to the solutions available and also closer to the human generated summary.
Efficiently Computed Lexical Chains as an Intermediate Representation for Automatic Text Summarization
TLDR
A linear-time algorithm for lexical chain computation is presented that makes lexical chains a computationally feasible candidate as an intermediate representation for automatic text summarization.
Summarizing Long Historical Documents Using Significance and Utility Calculation Using Wordnet
TLDR
The algorithm one which makes lexical chains a computationally possible for the user will produce a summary, which is a great deal more successful contrasted with the arrangements accessible and furthermore nearer to the human created summary.
An Efficient Text Summarizer using Lexical Chains
TLDR
A system which uses lexical chains as an intermediate representation for automatic text summarization by implementing a lexical chain extraction algorithm in linear time and provides useful summaries which compare well in information content to human generated summaries.
An Efficient WordNet-Based Summarizer for Large Text Documents
TLDR
An efficient sentence-based extraction summarizer which can be used for the above purpose and it is found that the system favors the human judgement than the other system.
An EÆcient Text Summarizer Using Lexical Chains
TLDR
A system which uses lexical chains as an intermediate representation for automatic text summarization by implementing a lexical chain extraction algorithm in linear time and provides useful summaries which compare well in information content to human generated summaries.
SUMMARIZING SEARCH RESULTS WITH AUTOMATICTABLES OF CONTENTS
TLDR
This work proposes the resultant table-of-contents (TOC) display as an alternative to help users digest a large document collection using less time and effort.
SIMPLIFIED TEXT ANALYSIS ALGORITHM FOR SUMMAIRZING MULTI-DOCUMENTS USING POS AND LEXICAL ANALYSIS
TLDR
The proposed work center around fragments of text summarization including the single and also multiple documents for producing the summaries and utilizing the idea of WordNet library and a one of a kind exercise of the lexical chains considering the full word classification portion of verbs, qualifiers, descriptors and so forth to get the exact summary.
Using Genetic Algorithms with Lexical Chains for Automatic Text Summarization
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel approach that incorporates lexical chains into the model as a feature and learns the feature weights using genetic algorithms.
AUTOMATED TEXT SUMMARIZATION AND KEYPHRASE EXTRACTION
TLDR
This thesis discusses the research on automated text summarization and keyphrase extraction using lexical chains, and investigates the effect of the use of lexical cohesion features in key phrase extraction, with a supervised machine learning algorithm.

Using Lexical Chains for Text Summarization
TLDR
Empirical results on the identification of strong chains and of significant sentences are presented in this paper, and plans to address short-comings are briefly presented.
Lexical Cohesion Computed by Thesaural Relations as an Indicator of the Structure of Text
TLDR
Since the lexical chains are computable, and exist in non-domain-specific text, they provide a valuable indicator of text structure, and provide a semantic context for interpreting words, concepts, and sentences.
The Automatic Creation of Literature Abstracts
TLDR
In the exploratory research described, the complete text of an article in machine-readable form is scanned by an IBM 704 data-processing machine and analyzed in accordance with a standard program.
Multi-Paragraph Segmentation of Expository Text
TLDR
TextTiling, an algorithm for partitioning expository texts into coherent multi-paragraph discourse units which reflect the subtopic structure of the texts, is described and shown to produce segmentation that corresponds well to human judgments of the major subtopic boundaries of thirteen lengthy texts.
Cohesion in English
TLDR
This book studies the cohesion that arises from semantic relations between sentences, reference from one to the other, repetition of word meanings, the conjunctive force of but, so, then and the like are considered.
