This paper describes a statistics-based approach for clustering documents and for extracting cluster topics. Relevant Expressions (REs) are extracted from corpora and used as clustering base features. These features are transformed and then by using an approach based on Principal Components Analysis, a small set of document classification features is obtained. The best number of clusters is found by ModelBased Clustering Analysis. Data transformations to approximate to normal distribution are done and results are discussed. The most important REs are extracted from each cluster and taken as cluster topics.
