# Topic extraction with Non-negative Matrix Factorization and Latent Dirichlet Allocation¶

This is an example of applying `NMF`

and
`LatentDirichletAllocation`

on a corpus
of documents and extract additive models of the topic structure of the
corpus. The output is a plot of topics, each represented as bar plot
using top few words based on weights.

Non-negative Matrix Factorization is applied with two different objective functions: the Frobenius norm, and the generalized Kullback-Leibler divergence. The latter is equivalent to Probabilistic Latent Semantic Indexing.

The default parameters (n_samples / n_features / n_components) should make the example runnable in a couple of tens of seconds. You can try to increase the dimensions of the problem, but be aware that the time complexity is polynomial in NMF. In LDA, the time complexity is proportional to (n_samples * iterations).
