1. Introduction

Create an automatic summary of a text passage by using its internal references. This project stems from a talk I once heard on natural language processing. The algorithm used in this utility was one of the examples.

A text passage that runs to several sentences will contain implicit references because nouns and verbs are used in more than one sentence. Each sentence has a number of implicit forward references and a number of implicit backward references. A passable summary can be made by listing the three sentences with the best balance of forward and backward references.
