报告摘要：Decomposing a document written by more than one author into sentences based on authorship is of great significance due to the increasing demand for plagiarism detection, forensic analysis, civil law (i.e., disputed copyright issues) and intelligence issues that involve disputed anonymous documents. Among existing studies for document decomposition some were limited by specific languages, according to topics or restricted to a document of two authors, and their accuracies have big rooms for improvement. In this paper, we consider the contextual correlation hidden among sentences and propose an algorithm for Sequential and Unsupervised Decomposition of a Multi-Author Document (SUDMAD) written in any language disregarding to topics, through the construction of a Hidden Markov Model (HMM) reflecting authors’ writing styles. To build and learn such a model, an unsupervised, statistical approach is first proposed to estimate the initial values of HMM parameters of a preliminary model, which does not require the availability of any information of authors or document’s context other than how many authors have contributed to writing the document. To further boost the performance of this approach, a boosted HMM learning procedure is proposed next, where the initial classification results are used to create labelled training data to learn a more accurate HMM. Moreover, the contextual relationship among sentences is further utilized to refine the classification results. Our proposed approach is empirically evaluated on three benchmark datasets which are widely used for authorship analysis of documents. Comparisons with recent state-the-art approaches are also presented to demonstrate the significance of our new ideas and the superior performance of our approach.
