Abstract
Let G = (V, E) be a digraph where each vertex is unlabeled, each edge is labeled by a character in some alphabet Ω, and any two edges with both the same head and the same tail have different labels. The powerset construction gives a transform of G into a weakly connected digraph G' = (V', E') that enables solving the decision problem of whether there is a walk in G matching an arbitrarily long query string q in time linear in |q| and independent of |E| and |V|. We show G is uniquely determined by G' when for every v_𝓁 ∈ V, there is some distinct string s_𝓁 on Ω such that v_𝓁 is the origin of a closed walk in G matching s_𝓁, and no other walk in G matches s_𝓁 unless it starts and ends at v_𝓁. We then exploit this invertibility condition to strategically alter any G so its transform G' enables retrieval of all t terminal vertices of walks in the unaltered G matching q in O(|q| + t log |V|) time. We conclude by proposing two defining properties of a class of transforms that includes the Burrows-Wheeler transform and the transform presented here.
