Solutions of Word Equations Over Partially Commutative Structures

pdf-format:


Abstract

We give NSPACE(n*log(n)) algorithms solving the following decision problems. Satisfiability: Is the given equation over a free partially commutative monoid with involution (resp. a free partially commutative group) solvable? Finiteness: Are there only finitely many solutions of such an equation? PSPACE algorithms with worse complexities for the first problem are known, but so far, a PSPACE algorithm for the second problem was out of reach. Our results are much stronger: Given such an equation, its solutions form an EDT0L language effectively representable in NSPACE(n*log(n)). In particular, we give an effective description of the set of all solutions for equations with constraints in free partially commutative monoids and groups.
