Order-Preserving Squares in Strings

Authors: Paweł Gawrychowski, Samah Ghazawi, and Gad M. Landau

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 259, 34th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching (CPM 2023)


Abstract
An order-preserving square in a string is a fragment of the form uv where u ≠ v and u is order-isomorphic to v. We show that a string w of length n over an alphabet of size σ contains 𝒪(σn) order-preserving squares that are distinct as words. This improves the upper bound of 𝒪(σ²n) by Kociumaka, Radoszewski, Rytter, and Waleń [TCS 2016]. Further, for every σ and n we exhibit a string with Ω(σn) order-preserving squares that are distinct as words, thus establishing that our upper bound is asymptotically tight. Finally, we design an 𝒪(σn) time algorithm that outputs all order-preserving squares that occur in a given string and are distinct as words. By our lower bound, this is optimal in the worst case.

Double String Tandem Repeats

Authors: Amihood Amir, Ayelet Butman, Gad M. Landau, Shoshana Marcus, and Dina Sokol

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 161, 31st Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching (CPM 2020)


Abstract
A tandem repeat is an occurrence of two adjacent identical substrings. In this paper, we introduce the notion of a double string, which consists of two parallel strings, and we study the problem of locating all tandem repeats in a double string. The problem introduced here has applications beyond actual double strings, as we illustrate by solving two different problems with the algorithm of the double string tandem repeats problem. The first problem is that of finding all corner-sharing tandems in a 2-dimensional text, defined by Apostolico and Brimkov. The second problem is that of finding all scaled tandem repeats in a 1d text, where a scaled tandem repeat is defined as a string UU' such that U' is discrete scale of U. In addition to the algorithms for exact tandem repeats, we also present algorithms that solve the problem in the inexact sense, allowing up to k mismatches. We believe that this framework will open a new perspective for other problems in the future.

On Indeterminate Strings Matching

Authors: Paweł Gawrychowski, Samah Ghazawi, and Gad M. Landau

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 161, 31st Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching (CPM 2020)


Abstract
Given two indeterminate equal-length strings p and t with a set of characters per position in both strings, we obtain a determinate string p_w from p and a determinate string t_w from t by choosing one character per position. Then, we say that p and t match when p_w and t_w match for some choice of the characters. While the most standard notion of a match for determinate strings is that they are simply identical, in certain applications it is more appropriate to use other definitions, with the prime examples being parameterized matching, order-preserving matching, and the recently introduced Cartesian tree matching. We provide a systematic study of the complexity of string matching for indeterminate equal-length strings, for different notions of matching. We use n to denote the length of both strings, and r to be an upper-bound on the number of uncertain characters per position. First, we provide the first polynomial time algorithm for the Cartesian tree version that runs in deterministic 𝒪(nlog² n) and expected 𝒪(nlog nlog log n) time using 𝒪(nlog n) space, for constant r. Second, we establish NP-hardness of the order-preserving version for r=2, thus solving a question explicitly stated by Henriques et al. [CPM 2018], who showed hardness for r=3. Third, we establish NP-hardness of the parameterized version for r=2. As both parameterized and order-preserving indeterminate matching reduce to the standard determinate matching for r=1, this provides a complete classification for these three variants.

Top Tree Compression of Tries

Authors: Philip Bille, Paweł Gawrychowski, Inge Li Gørtz, Gad M. Landau, and Oren Weimann

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 149, 30th International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation (ISAAC 2019)


Abstract
We present a compressed representation of tries based on top tree compression [ICALP 2013] that works on a standard, comparison-based, pointer machine model of computation and supports efficient prefix search queries. Namely, we show how to preprocess a set of strings of total length n over an alphabet of size sigma into a compressed data structure of worst-case optimal size O(n/log_sigma n) that given a pattern string P of length m determines if P is a prefix of one of the strings in time O(min(m log sigma,m + log n)). We show that this query time is in fact optimal regardless of the size of the data structure. Existing solutions either use Omega(n) space or rely on word RAM techniques, such as tabulation, hashing, address arithmetic, or word-level parallelism, and hence do not work on a pointer machine. Our result is the first solution on a pointer machine that achieves worst-case o(n) space. Along the way, we develop several interesting data structures that work on a pointer machine and are of independent interest. These include an optimal data structures for random access to a grammar-compressed string and an optimal data structure for a variant of the level ancestor problem.

Cartesian Tree Matching and Indexing

Authors: Sung Gwan Park, Amihood Amir, Gad M. Landau, and Kunsoo Park

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 128, 30th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching (CPM 2019)


Abstract
We introduce a new metric of match, called Cartesian tree matching, which means that two strings match if they have the same Cartesian trees. Based on Cartesian tree matching, we define single pattern matching for a text of length n and a pattern of length m, and multiple pattern matching for a text of length n and k patterns of total length m. We present an O(n+m) time algorithm for single pattern matching, and an O((n+m) log k) deterministic time or O(n+m) randomized time algorithm for multiple pattern matching. We also define an index data structure called Cartesian suffix tree, and present an O(n) randomized time algorithm to build the Cartesian suffix tree. Our efficient algorithms for Cartesian tree matching use a representation of the Cartesian tree, called the parent-distance representation.

Fast Entropy-Bounded String Dictionary Look-Up with Mismatches

Authors: Pawel Gawrychowski, Gad M. Landau, and Tatiana Starikovskaya

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 117, 43rd International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2018)


Abstract
We revisit the fundamental problem of dictionary look-up with mismatches. Given a set (dictionary) of d strings of length m and an integer k, we must preprocess it into a data structure to answer the following queries: Given a query string Q of length m, find all strings in the dictionary that are at Hamming distance at most k from Q. Chan and Lewenstein (CPM 2015) showed a data structure for k = 1 with optimal query time O(m/w + occ), where w is the size of a machine word and occ is the size of the output. The data structure occupies O(w d log^{1+epsilon} d) extra bits of space (beyond the entropy-bounded space required to store the dictionary strings). In this work we give a solution with similar bounds for a much wider range of values k. Namely, we give a data structure that has O(m/w + log^k d + occ) query time and uses O(w d log^k d) extra bits of space.

Two-Dimensional Maximal Repetitions

Authors: Amihood Amir, Gad M. Landau, Shoshana Marcus, and Dina Sokol

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 112, 26th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2018)


Abstract
Maximal repetitions or runs in strings have a wide array of applications and thus have been extensively studied. In this paper, we extend this notion to 2-dimensions, precisely defining a maximal 2D repetition. We provide initial bounds on the number of maximal 2D repetitions that can occur in a matrix. The main contribution of this paper is the presentation of the first algorithm for locating all maximal 2D repetitions in a matrix. The algorithm is efficient and straightforward, with runtime O(n^2 log n log log n+ rho log n), where n^2 is the size of the input, and rho is the number of 2D repetitions in the output.

A Faster Construction of Greedy Consensus Trees

Authors: Pawel Gawrychowski, Gad M. Landau, Wing-Kin Sung, and Oren Weimann

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 107, 45th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2018)


Abstract
A consensus tree is a phylogenetic tree that captures the similarity between a set of conflicting phylogenetic trees. The problem of computing a consensus tree is a major step in phylogenetic tree reconstruction. It is also central for predicting a species tree from a set of gene trees, as indicated recently in [Nature 2013]. This paper focuses on two of the most well-known and widely used consensus tree methods: the greedy consensus tree and the frequency difference consensus tree. Given k conflicting trees each with n leaves, the previous fastest algorithms for these problems were O(k n^2) for the greedy consensus tree [J. ACM 2016] and O~(min{k n^2, k^2n}) for the frequency difference consensus tree [ACM TCBB 2016]. We improve these running times to O~(k n^{1.5}) and O~(k n) respectively.

The Nearest Colored Node in a Tree

Authors: Pawel Gawrychowski, Gad M. Landau, Shay Mozes, and Oren Weimann

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 54, 27th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching (CPM 2016)


Abstract
We start a systematic study of data structures for the nearest colored node problem on trees. Given a tree with colored nodes and weighted edges, we want to answer queries (v,c) asking for the nearest node to node v that has color c. This is a natural generalization of the well-known nearest marked ancestor problem. We give an O(n)-space O(log log n)-query solution and show that this is optimal. We also consider the dynamic case where updates can change a node's color and show that in O(n) space we can support both updates and queries in O(log n) time. We complement this by showing that O(polylog n) update time implies Omega(log n \ log log n) query time. Finally, we consider the case where updates can change the edges of the tree (link-cut operations). There is a known (top-tree based) solution that requires update time that is roughly linear in the number of colors. We show that this solution is probably optimal by showing that a strictly sublinear update time implies a strictly subcubic time algorithm for the classical all pairs shortest paths problem on a general graph. We also consider versions where the tree is rooted, and the query asks for the nearest ancestor/descendant of node v that has color c, and present efficient data structures for both variants in the static and the dynamic setting.

A Unified Algorithm for Accelerating Edit-Distance Computation via Text-Compression

Authors: Danny Hermelin, Gad M. Landau, Shir Landau, and Oren Weimann

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 3, 26th International Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science (2009)


Abstract
The edit distance problem is a classical fundamental problem in computer science in general, and in combinatorial pattern matching in particular. The standard dynamic-programming solution for this problem computes the edit-distance between a pair of strings of total length $O(N)$ in $O(N^2)$ time. To this date, this quadratic upper-bound has never been substantially improved for general strings. However, there are known techniques for breaking this bound in case the strings are known to compress well under a particular compression scheme. The basic idea is to first compress the strings, and then to compute the edit distance between the compressed strings. As it turns out, practically all known $o(N^2)$ edit-distance algorithms work, in some sense, under the same paradigm described above. It is therefore natural to ask whether there is a single edit-distance algorithm that works for strings which are compressed under any compression scheme. A rephrasing of this question is to ask whether a single algorithm can exploit the compressibility properties of strings under any compression method, even if each string is compressed using a different compression. In this paper we set out to answer this question by using \emph{straight-line programs}. These provide a generic platform for representing many popular compression schemes including the LZ-family, Run-Length Encoding, Byte-Pair Encoding, and dictionary methods. For two strings of total length $N$ having straight-line program representations of total size $n$, we present an algorithm running in $O(n^{1.4}N^{1.2})$ time for computing the edit-distance of these two strings under any rational scoring function, and an $O(n^{1.34}N^{1.34})$-time algorithm for arbitrary scoring functions. This improves on a recent algorithm of Tiskin that runs in $O(nN^{1.5})$ time, and works only for rational scoring functions.
