Text summarization is a process of extracting salient information from a source text and presenting that information to the user in a condensed form while preserving its main content. In the text summarization, most of the difficult problems are providing wide topic coverage and diversity in a summary. Research based on clustering, optimization and evolutionary algorithm for text summarization has recently shown good results, making this a promising area. In this paper, for text summarization, a two‐stage sentences selection model based on clustering and optimization techniques, called COSUM, is proposed. At the first stage, to discover all topics in a text, the sentences set is clustered by using the k‐means method. At the second stage, for selection of salient sentences from clusters, an optimization model is proposed. This model optimizes an objective function that expressed as a harmonic mean of the objective functions enforcing the coverage and diversity of the selected sentences in the summary.
To provide readability of a summary, this model also controls the length of sentences selected in the candidate summary. For solving the optimization problem, an adaptive differential evolution algorithm with a novel mutation strategy is developed.
The method COSUM was compared with the 14 state‐of‐the‐art methods. Experimental results demonstrated that COSUM outperforms state‐of‐the‐art methods in terms of ROUGE‐1 and ROUGE‐2 measures.
