Abstract: This paper focuses on continuous news streams and presents a method for detecting salient, key sentences from stories that discuss the same topic. Our hypothesis about key sentences in multiple stories is that they include words related to the target topic, and the sub ject of a story. In addition to the TF-IDF term weighting method, we used the result of assigning domain-specific senses to each word in the story to identify a subject. A topic, on the other hand, is identified by using a model of ”topic dynamics”. We defined a burst as a time interval of maximal length over which the rate of change is positive acceleration. We adapted stock market trend analysis technique, i.e., Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). It shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices, and is popular indicator of trends in dynamic marketplaces. We utilized it to measure topic dynamics. The method was tested on the TDT corpora, and the results showed the effectiveness of the method.
