3+ε Approximation of Tree Edit Distance in Truly Subquadratic Time

Abstract
Tree edit distance is a well-known generalization of the edit distance problem to rooted trees. In this problem, the goal is to transform a rooted tree into another rooted tree via (i) node addition, (ii) node deletion, and (iii) node relabel. In this work, we give a truly subquadratic time algorithm that approximates tree edit distance within a factor 3+ε. Our result is obtained through a novel extension of a 3-step framework that approximates edit distance in truly subquadratic time. This framework has also been previously used to approximate longest common subsequence in subquadratic time.
