Analysis of academic literature on parsing by means of topic analysis


This diploma thesis' goal is to implement a software tool that executes a topic analysis as follows: Collect, preprocess and analyze scientific articles semiautomatically in order to study and summarize a given category of a scientific field automatically. The data collection is based on the theory of systematic mapping study, on methods of data mining in terms of preprocessing and on latent dirichlet allocation in terms of data analysis. The output of the analysis is converted to HTML in order to link the output also from webpages that are not part of the above mentioned software tool. Topic analysis with the help of this tool is demonstrated based on a running example for parsing.
