A trie 𝒯 is a rooted tree such that each edge is labeled by a single character from the alphabet, and the labels of out-going edges from the same node are mutually distinct. Given a trie 𝒯 with n edges, we show how to compute all distinct palindromes and all maximal palindromes on 𝒯 in O(n) time, in the case of integer alphabets of size polynomial in n. This improves the state-of-the-art O(n log h)-time algorithms by Funakoshi et al. [PSC 2019], where h is the height of 𝒯. Using our new algorithms, the eertree with suffix links for a given trie 𝒯 can readily be obtained in O(n) time. Further, our trie-based O(n)-space data structure allows us to report all distinct palindromes and maximal palindromes in a query string represented in the trie 𝒯, in output optimal time. This is an improvement over an existing (naïve) solution that precomputes and stores all distinct palindromes and maximal palindromes for each and every string in the trie 𝒯 separately, using a total O(n²) preprocessing time and space, and reports them in output optimal time upon query.

Park et al. [TCS 2020] observed that the similarity between two (numerical) strings can be captured by the Cartesian trees: The Cartesian tree of a string is a binary tree recursively constructed by picking up the smallest value of the string as the root of the tree. Two strings of equal length are said to Cartesian-tree match if their Cartesian trees are isomorphic. Park et al. [TCS 2020] introduced the following Cartesian tree substring matching (CTMStr) problem: Given a text string T of length n and a pattern string of length m, find every consecutive substring S = T[i..j] of a text string T such that S and P Cartesian-tree match. They showed how to solve this problem in Õ(n+m) time. In this paper, we introduce the Cartesian tree subsequence matching (CTMSeq) problem, that asks to find every minimal substring S = T[i..j] of T such that S contains a subsequence S' which Cartesian-tree matches P. We prove that the CTMSeq problem can be solved efficiently, in O(m n p(n)) time, where p(n) denotes the update/query time for dynamic predecessor queries. By using a suitable dynamic predecessor data structure, we obtain O(mn log log n)-time and O(n log m)-space solution for CTMSeq. This contrasts CTMSeq with closely related order-preserving subsequence matching (OPMSeq) which was shown to be NP-hard by Bose et al. [IPL 1998].

Grammar-based compression is a loss-less data compression scheme that represents a given string w by a context-free grammar that generates only w. While computing the smallest grammar which generates a given string w is NP-hard in general, a number of polynomial-time grammar-based compressors which work well in practice have been proposed. RePair, proposed by Larsson and Moffat in 1999, is a grammar-based compressor which recursively replaces all possible occurrences of a most frequently occurring bigrams in the string. Since there can be multiple choices of the most frequent bigrams to replace, different implementations of RePair can result in different grammars. In this paper, we show that the smallest grammars generating the Fibonacci words F_k can be completely characterized by RePair, where F_k denotes the k-th Fibonacci word. Namely, all grammars for F_k generated by any implementation of RePair are the smallest grammars for F_k, and no other grammars can be the smallest for F_k. To the best of our knowledge, Fibonacci words are the first non-trivial infinite family of strings for which RePair is optimal.

A string w is called a minimal absent word for another string T if w does not occur (as a substring) in T and all proper substrings of w occur in T. State-of-the-art data structures for reporting the set MAW(T) of MAWs from a given string T of length n require O(n) space, can be built in O(n) time, and can report all MAWs in O(|MAW(T)|) time upon a query. This paper initiates the problem of computing MAWs from a compressed representation of a string. In particular, we focus on the most basic compressed representation of a string, run-length encoding (RLE), which represents each maximal run of the same characters a by a^p where p is the length of the run. Let m be the RLE-size of string T. After categorizing the MAWs into five disjoint sets ℳ₁, ℳ₂, ℳ₃, ℳ₄, ℳ₅ using RLE, we present matching upper and lower bounds for the number of MAWs in ℳ_i for i = 1,2,4,5 in terms of RLE-size m, except for ℳ₃ whose size is unbounded by m. We then present a compact O(m)-space data structure that can report all MAWs in optimal O(|MAW(T)|) time.

The similarity between a pair of time series, i.e., sequences of indexed values in time order, is often estimated by the dynamic time warping (DTW) distance, instead of any in the well-studied family of measures including the longest common subsequence (LCS) length and the edit distance. Although it may seem as if the DTW and the LCS(-like) measures are essentially different, we reveal that the DTW distance can be represented by the longest increasing subsequence (LIS) length of a sequence of integers, which is the LCS length between the integer sequence and itself sorted. For a given pair of time series of n integers between zero and c, we propose an integer sequence that represents any substring-substring DTW distance as its band-substring LIS length. The length of the produced integer sequence is O(c⁴ n²) or O(c² n²) depending on the variant of the DTW distance used, both of which can be translated to O(n²) for constant cost functions. To demonstrate that techniques developed under the LCS(-like) measures are directly applicable to analysis of time series via our reduction of DTW to LIS, we present time-efficient algorithms for DTW-related problems utilizing the semi-local sequence comparison technique developed for LCS-related problems.

The equidistant subsequence pattern matching problem is considered. Given a pattern string P and a text string T, we say that P is an equidistant subsequence of T if P is a subsequence of the text such that consecutive symbols of P in the occurrence are equally spaced. We can consider the problem of equidistant subsequences as generalizations of (sub-)cadences. We give bit-parallel algorithms that yield o(n²) time algorithms for finding k-(sub-)cadences and equidistant subsequences. Furthermore, O(nlog² n) and O(nlog n) time algorithms, respectively for equidistant and Abelian equidistant matching for the case |P| = 3, are shown. The algorithms make use of a technique that was recently introduced which can efficiently compute convolutions with linear constraints.

Two strings x and y over Σ ∪ Π of equal length are said to parameterized match (p-match) if there is a renaming bijection f:Σ ∪ Π → Σ ∪ Π that is identity on Σ and transforms x to y (or vice versa). The p-matching problem is to look for substrings in a text that p-match a given pattern. In this paper, we propose parameterized suffix automata (p-suffix automata) and parameterized directed acyclic word graphs (PDAWGs) which are the p-matching versions of suffix automata and DAWGs. While suffix automata and DAWGs are equivalent for standard strings, we show that p-suffix automata can have Θ(n²) nodes and edges but PDAWGs have only O(n) nodes and edges, where n is the length of an input string. We also give O(n |Π| log (|Π| + |Σ|))-time O(n)-space algorithm that builds the PDAWG in a left-to-right online manner. As a byproduct, it is shown that the parameterized suffix tree for the reversed string can also be built in the same time and space, in a right-to-left online manner.

For a set D of documents and a positive integer d, a string w is said to be d-left-right maximal, if (1) w occurs in at least d documents in D, and (2) any proper superstring of w occurs in less than d documents. The left-right-maximal generic words problem is, given a set D of documents, to preprocess D so that for any string p and for any positive integer d, all the superstrings of p that are d-left-right maximal can be answered quickly. In this paper, we present an O(n log m) space data structure (in words) which answers queries in O(|p| + o log log m) time, where n is the total length of documents in D, m is the number of documents in D and o is the number of outputs. Our solution improves the previous one by Nishimoto et al. (PSC 2015), which uses an O(n log n) space data structure answering queries in O(|p|+ r * log n + o * log^2 n) time, where r is the number of right-extensions q of p occurring in at least d documents such that any proper right extension of q occurs in less than d documents.

A maximal repetition, or run, in a string, is a maximal periodic substring whose smallest period is at most half the length of the substring. In this paper, we consider runs that correspond to a path on a trie, or in other words, on a rooted edge-labeled tree where the endpoints of the path must be a descendant/ancestor of the other. For a trie with n edges, we show that the number of runs is less than n. We also show an O(n sqrt{log n}log log n) time and O(n) space algorithm for counting and finding the shallower endpoint of all runs. We further show an O(n log n) time and O(n) space algorithm for finding both endpoints of all runs. We also discuss how to improve the running time even more.

Palindromes are important objects in strings which have been extensively studied from combinatorial, algorithmic, and bioinformatics points of views. Manacher [J. ACM 1975] proposed a seminal algorithm that computes the longest substring palindromes (LSPals) of a given string in O(n) time, where n is the length of the string. In this paper, we consider the problem of finding the LSPal after the string is edited. We present an algorithm that uses O(n) time and space for preprocessing, and answers the length of the LSPals in O(l + log log n) time, after a substring in T is replaced by a string of arbitrary length l. This outperforms the query algorithm proposed in our previous work [CPM 2018] that uses O(l + log n) time for each query.

Lempel-Ziv (LZ) factorization and Lyndon factorization are well-known factorizations of strings. Recently, Kärkkäinen et al. studied the relation between the sizes of the two factorizations, and showed that the size of the Lyndon factorization is always smaller than twice the size of the non-overlapping LZ factorization [STACS 2017]. In this paper, we consider a similar problem for the overlapping version of the LZ factorization. Since the size of the overlapping LZ factorization is always smaller than the size of the non-overlapping LZ factorization and, in fact, can even be an O(log n) factor smaller, it is not immediately clear whether a similar bound as in previous work would hold. Nevertheless, in this paper, we prove that the size of the Lyndon factorization is always smaller than four times the size of the overlapping LZ factorization.

The suffix trees are fundamental data structures for various kinds of string processing. The suffix tree of a string T of length n has O(n) nodes and edges, and the string label of each edge is encoded by a pair of positions in T. Thus, even after the tree is built, the input text T needs to be kept stored and random access to T is still needed. The linear-size suffix tries (LSTs), proposed by Crochemore et al. [Linear-size suffix tries, TCS 638:171-178, 2016], are a "stand-alone" alternative to the suffix trees. Namely, the LST of a string T of length n occupies O(n) total space, and supports pattern matching and other tasks in the same efficiency as the suffix tree without the need to store the input text T. Crochemore et al. proposed an offline algorithm which transforms the suffix tree of T into the LST of T in O(n log sigma) time and O(n) space, where sigma is the alphabet size. In this paper, we present two types of online algorithms which "directly" construct the LST, from right to left, and from left to right, without constructing the suffix tree as an intermediate structure. Both algorithms construct the LST incrementally when a new symbol is read, and do not access to the previously read symbols. The right-to-left construction algorithm works in O(n log sigma) time and O(n) space and the left-to-right construction algorithm works in O(n (log sigma + log n / log log n)) time and O(n) space. The main feature of our algorithms is that the input text does not need to be stored.

An Elastic-Degenerate String [Iliopoulus et al., LATA 2017] is a sequence of sets of strings, which was recently proposed as a way to model a set of similar sequences. We give an online algorithm for the Elastic-Degenerate String Matching (EDSM) problem that runs in O(nm sqrt{m log m} + N) time and O(m) working space, where n is the number of elastic degenerate segments of the text, N is the total length of all strings in the text, and m is the length of the pattern. This improves the previous algorithm by Grossi et al. [CPM 2017] that runs in O(nm^2 + N) time.

It is known that the length of the longest substring palindromes (LSPals) of a given string T of length n can be computed in O(n) time by Manacher's algorithm [J. ACM '75]. In this paper, we consider the problem of finding the LSPal after the string is edited. We present an algorithm that uses O(n) time and space for preprocessing, and answers the length of the LSPals in O(log (min {sigma, log n })) time after single character substitution, insertion, or deletion, where sigma denotes the number of distinct characters appearing in T. We also propose an algorithm that uses O(n) time and space for preprocessing, and answers the length of the LSPals in O(l + log n) time, after an existing substring in T is replaced by a string of arbitrary length l.

A square is a non-empty string of form YY. The longest common square subsequence (LCSqS) problem is to compute a longest square occurring as a subsequence in two given strings A and B. We show that the problem can easily be solved in O(n^6) time or O(|M|n^4) time with O(n^4) space, where n is the length of the strings and M is the set of matching points between A and B. Then, we show that the problem can also be solved in O(sigma |M|^3 + n) time and O(|M|^2 + n) space, or in O(|M|^3 log^2 n log log n + n) time with O(|M|^3 + n) space, where sigma is the number of distinct characters occurring in A and B. We also study lower bounds for the LCSqS problem for two or more strings.

The longest Lyndon substring of a string T is the longest substring of T which is a Lyndon word. LLS(T) denotes the length of the longest Lyndon substring of a string T. In this paper, we consider computing LLS(T') where T' is an edited string formed from T. After O(n) time and space preprocessing, our algorithm returns LLS(T') in O(log n) time for any single character edit. We also consider a version of the problem with block edits, i.e., a substring of T is replaced by a given string of length l. After O(n) time and space preprocessing, our algorithm returns LLS(T') in O(l log sigma + log n) time for any block edit where sigma is the number of distinct characters in T. We can modify our algorithm so as to output all the longest Lyndon substrings of T' for both problems.

We revisit the problem of computing the Lyndon factorization of a string w of length N which is given as a straight line program (SLP) of size n. For this problem, we show a new algorithm which runs in O(P(n, N) + Q(n, N)n log log N) time and O(n log N + S(n, N)) space where P(n, N), S(n,N), Q(n,N) are respectively the pre-processing time, space, and query time of a data structure for longest common extensions (LCE) on SLPs. Our algorithm improves the algorithm proposed by I et al. (TCS '17), and can be more efficient than the O(N)-time solution by Duval (J. Algorithms '83) when w is highly compressible.

We consider the problem of computing all maximal repetitions contained in a string that is given in run-length encoding.
Given a run-length encoding of a string, we show that the maximum number of maximal repetitions contained in the string is at most m+k-1, where m is the size of the run-length encoding, and k is the number of run-length factors whose exponent is at least 2.
We also show an algorithm for computing all maximal repetitions in O(m \alpha(m)) time and O(m) space, where \alpha denotes the inverse Ackermann function.

The longest common extension (LCE) problem is to preprocess a given string w of length n so that the length of the longest common prefix between suffixes of w that start at any two given positions is answered quickly. In this paper, we present a data structure of O(z \tau^2 + \frac{n}{\tau}) words of space which answers LCE queries in O(1) time and can be built in O(n \log \sigma) time, where 1 \leq \tau \leq \sqrt{n} is a parameter, z is the size of the Lempel-Ziv 77 factorization of w and \sigma is the alphabet size. The proposed LCE data structure not access the input string w when answering queries, and thus w can be deleted after preprocessing. On top of this main result, we obtain further results using (variants of) our LCE data structure, which include the following:
- For highly repetitive strings where the z\tau^2 term is dominated by \frac{n}{\tau}, we obtain a constant-time and sub-linear space LCE query data structure.
- Even when the input string is not well compressible via Lempel-Ziv 77 factorization, we still can obtain a constant-time and sub-linear space LCE data structure for suitable \tau and for \sigma \leq 2^{o(\log n)}.
- The time-space trade-off lower bounds for the LCE problem by Bille et al. [J. Discrete Algorithms, 25:42-50, 2014] and by Kosolobov [CoRR, abs/1611.02891, 2016] do not apply in some cases with our LCE data structure.

The constrained LCS problem asks one to find a longest common subsequence of two input strings A and B with some constraints. The STR-IC-LCS problem is a variant of the constrained LCS problem, where the solution must include a given constraint string C as a substring. Given two strings A and B of respective lengths M and N, and a constraint string C of length at most min{M, N}, the best known algorithm for the STR-IC-LCS problem, proposed by Deorowicz (Inf. Process. Lett., 11:423-426, 2012), runs in O(MN) time. In this work, we present an O(mN + nM)-time solution to the STR-IC-LCS problem, where m and n denote the sizes of the run-length encodings of A and B, respectively. Since m <= M and n <= N always hold, our algorithm is always as fast as Deorowicz's algorithm, and is faster when input strings are compressible via RLE.

Given a string on an integer alphabet, we present an algorithm that computes the set of all distinct squares belonging to this string in time linear to the string length. As an application, we show how to compute the tree topology of the minimal augmented suffix tree in linear time. Asides from that, we elaborate an algorithm computing the longest previous table in a succinct representation using compressed working space.

A substring Q of a string S is called a shortest unique substring (SUS) for interval [s,t] in S, if Q occurs exactly once in S, this occurrence of Q contains interval [s,t], and every substring of S which contains interval [s,t] and is shorter than Q occurs at least twice in S. The SUS problem is, given a string S, to preprocess S so that for any subsequent query interval [s,t] all the SUSs for interval [s,t] can be answered quickly. When s = t, we call the SUSs for [s, t] as point SUSs, and when s <= t, we call the SUSs for [s, t] as interval SUSs. There exist optimal O(n)-time preprocessing scheme which answers queries in optimal O(k) time for both point and interval SUSs, where n is the length of S and k is the number of outputs for a given query. In this paper, we reveal structural, combinatorial properties underlying the SUS problem: Namely, we show that the number of intervals in S that correspond to point SUSs for all query positions in S is less than 1.5n, and show that this is a matching upper and lower bound. Also, we consider the maximum number of intervals in S that correspond to interval SUSs for all query intervals in S.

The directed acyclic word graph (DAWG) of a string y is the smallest (partial) DFA which recognizes all suffixes of y and has only O(n) nodes and edges. We present the first O(n)-time algorithm for computing the DAWG of a given string y of length n over an integer alphabet of polynomial size in n. We also show that a straightforward modification to our DAWG construction algorithm leads to the first O(n)-time algorithm for constructing the affix tree of a given string y over an integer alphabet. Affix trees are a text indexing structure supporting bidirectional pattern searches. As an application to our O(n)-time DAWG construction algorithm, we show that the set MAW(y) of all minimal absent words of y can be computed in optimal O(n + |MAW(y)|) time and O(n) working space for integer alphabets.

We consider the problem of answering shortest unique substring (SUS) queries on run-length encoded strings. For a string S, a unique substring u = S[i..j] is said to be a shortest unique substring (SUS) of S containing an interval [s, t] (i <= s <= t <= j) if for any i' <= s <= t <= j' with j-i > j'-i', S[i'..j'] occurs at least twice in S.
Given a run-length encoding of size m of a string of length N, we show that we can construct a data structure of size O(m+pi_s(N, m)) in O(m log m + pi_c(N, m)) time such that queries can be answered in
O(pi_q(N, m) + k) time, where k is the size of the output (the number of SUSs), and pi_s(N,m), pi_c(N,m), pi_q(N,m) are, respectively, the size, construction time, and query time for a predecessor/successor query data structure of m elements for the universe of [1,N]. Using the data structure by Beam and Fich (JCSS 2002), this results in a data structure of O(m) space that is constructed in O(m log m) time, and answers queries in O(sqrt(log m/loglog m)+k) time.

A Longest Common Extension (LCE) query on a text T of length N asks for the length of the longest common prefix of suffixes starting at given two positions. We show that the signature encoding G of size w = O(min(z log N log^* M, N)) [Mehlhorn et al., Algorithmica 17(2):183-198, 1997] of T, which can be seen as a compressed representation of T, has a capability to support LCE queries in O(log N + log ell log^* M) time, where ell is the answer to the query, z is the size of the Lempel-Ziv77 (LZ77) factorization of T, and M >= 4N is an integer that can be handled in constant time under word RAM model. In compressed space, this is the fastest deterministic LCE data structure in many cases. Moreover, G can be enhanced to support efficient update operations: After processing G in O(w f_A) time, we can insert/delete any (sub)string of length y into/from an arbitrary position of T in O((y + log Nlog^* M) f_A) time, where f_A = O(min{ (loglog M loglog w)/(logloglog M), sqrt(log w/loglog w)}). This yields the first fully dynamic LCE data structure working in compressed space. We also present efficient construction algorithms from various types of inputs: We can construct G in O(N f_A) time from uncompressed string T; in O(n loglog (n log^* M) log N log^* M) time from grammar-compressed string T represented by a straight-line program of size n; and in O(z f_A log N log^* M) time from LZ77-compressed string T with z factors. On top of the above contributions, we show several applications of our data structures which improve previous best known results on grammar-compressed string processing.

Given a string S of n symbols, a longest common extension query LCE(i,j) asks for the length of the longest common prefix of the $i$th and $j$th suffixes of S. LCE queries have several important applications in string processing, perhaps most notably to suffix sorting. Recently, Bille et al. (J. Discrete Algorithms 25:42-50, 2014, Proc. CPM 2015:65-76) described several data structures for answering LCE queries that offers a space-time trade-off between data structure size and query time. In particular, for a parameter 1 <= tau <= n, their best deterministic solution is a data structure of size O(n/tau) which allows LCE queries to be answered in O(tau) time. However, the construction time for all deterministic versions of their data structure is quadratic in n. In this paper, we propose a deterministic solution that achieves a similar space-time trade-off of O(tau * min(log(tau),log(n/tau)) query time using O(n/tau) space, but significantly improve the construction time to O(n*tau).

We consider fully-online construction of indexing data structures for multiple texts. Let T = {T_1, ..., T_K} be a collection of texts. By fully-online, we mean that a new character can be appended to any text in T at any time. This is a natural generalization of semi-online construction of indexing data structures for multiple texts in which, after a new character is appended to the kth text T_k, then its previous texts T_1, ..., T_k-1 will remain static. Our fully-online scenario arises when we maintain dynamic indexes for multi-sensor data. Let N and sigma denote the total length of texts in T and the alphabet size, respectively. We first show that the algorithm by Blumer et al. [Theoretical Computer Science, 40:31-55, 1985] to construct the directed acyclic word graph (DAWG) for T can readily be extended to our fully-online setting, retaining O(N log sigma)-time and O(N)-space complexities. Then, we give a sophisticated fully-online algorithm which constructs the suffix tree for T in O(N log sigma) time and O(N) space. A key idea of this algorithm is synchronized maintenance of the DAWG and the suffix tree.

A square factorization of a string w is a factorization of w in which each factor is a square. Dumitran et al. [SPIRE 2015, pp. 54-66] showed how to find a square factorization of a given string of length n in O(n log n) time, and they posed a question whether it can be done in O(n) time. In this paper, we answer their question positively, showing an O(n)-time algorithm for square factorization in the standard word RAM model with machine word size omega = Omega(log n). We also show an O(n + (n log^2 n) / omega)-time (respectively, O(n log n)-time) algorithm to find a square factorization which contains the maximum (respectively, minimum) number of squares.

For alpha >=1, an alpha-gapped repeat in a word w is a factor uvu of w such that |uv| <= alpha * |u|; the two occurrences of a factor u in such a repeat are called arms. Such a repeat is called maximal if its arms cannot be extended simultaneously with the same symbol to the right nor to the left. We show that the number of all maximal alpha-gapped repeats occurring in words of length n is upper bounded by 18 * alpha * n, allowing us to construct an algorithm finding all maximal alpha-gapped repeats of a word on an integer alphabet of size n^{O}(1)} in {O}(alpha * n) time. This result is optimal as there are words that have Theta(alpha * n) maximal alpha-gapped repeats. Our techniques can be extended to get comparable results in the case of alpha-gapped palindromes, i.e., factors uvu^{T} with |uv| <= alpha |u|.

We present a new on-line algorithm for computing the Lempel-Ziv factorization of a string that runs in O(N.log(N)) time and uses only O(N.log(s)) bits of working space, where N is the length of the string and s is the size of the alphabet. This is a notable improvement compared to the performance of previous on-line algorithms using the same order of working space but running in either O(N.log^3(N)) time [Okanohara and Sadakane, 2009] or O(N.log^2(N)) time [Starikovskaya, 2012]. The key to our new algorithm is in the utilization of an elegant but less popular index structure called Directed Acyclic Word Graphs, or DAWGs [Blumer et al., 1985]. We also present an opportunistic variant of our algorithm, which, given the run length encoding of size m of a string of length N, computes the Lempel-Ziv factorization of the string on-line, in O(m.min{log(log(m)).log(log(N))/(log(log(log(N)))), (log(m))^{1/2}/(log(log(m)))^{1/2})}) time and O(m.log(N)) bits of space.

In this paper we study the problem of deciding whether a
given compressed string contains a square. A string x is called a square
if x = zz and z = u^k implies k = 1 and u = z. A string w is said to be
square-free if no substrings of w are squares. Many efficient algorithms
to test if a given string is square-free, have been developed so far. However,
very little is known for testing square-freeness of a given compressed
string. In this paper, we give an O(max(n^2; n log^2 N))-time O(n^2)-space
solution to test square-freeness of a given compressed string, where n
and N are the size of a given compressed string and the corresponding
decompressed string, respectively. Our input strings are compressed by
balanced straight line program (BSLP). We remark that BSLP has exponential
compression, that is, N = O(2^n). Hence no decompress-then-test
approaches can be better than our method in the worst case.
