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 α (m)) time and O(m) space, where α denotes the inverse Ackermann function.. |

In this paper, we present a data structure of O(z^{2} + n/t ) words of space which answers LCE queries in O(1) time and can be built in O(n log δ) time, where 1 ≤ T ≤ √n is a parameter, z is the size of the Lempel-Ziv 77 factorization of ω and φ is the alphabet size. The proposed LCE data structure does not access the input string ω 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^{2} term is dominated by n/x, 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 and for φ ≤ 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.. |

If a string z satisfies z = xy with x and y being Abelian equivalent, then z is said to be an Abelian square. If a string w can be factorized into a sequence v_{1}, …, vs of strings such that v_{1}, …, v_{s-1} are all Abelian equivalent and vs is a substring of a permutation of v_{1}, then w is said to have a regular Abelian period (p, t) where p = |v1| and t = |v_{s}|. If a substring w1[i.i+l-1] of a string w1 and a substring w2[j.j + l - 1] of another string w2 are Abelian equivalent, then the substrings are said to be a common Abelian factor of w1 and w2 and if the length l is the maximum of such then the substrings are said to be a longest common Abelian factor of w1 and w2. We propose efficient algorithms which compute these Abelian regularities using the run length encoding (RLE) of strings. For a given string w of length n whose RLE is of size m, we propose algorithms which compute all Abelian squares occurring in w in O(mn) time, and all regular Abelian periods of w in O(mn) time. For two given strings w1 and w2 of total length n and of total RLE size m, we propose an algorithm which computes all longest common Abelian factors in O(m^{2}n) time.. |

A palindromic substring P of a string S is called a shortest unique palindromic substring (SUPS) for an interval [s, t] in S, if P occurs exactly once in S, this occurrence of P contains interval [s, t], and every palindromic substring of S which contains interval [s, t] and is shorter than P occurs at least twice in S. The SUPS problem is, given a string S, to preprocess S so that for any subsequent query interval [s, t] all the SUPSs for interval [s, t] can be answered quickly. We present an optimal solution to this problem. Namely, we show how to preprocess a given string S of length n in O(n) time and space so that all SUPSs for any subsequent query interval can be answered in O(α + 1) time, where α is the number of outputs.. |

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.. |

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.. |

Takuya Mieno, Shunsuke Inenaga, Hideo Bannai, Masayuki Takeda, Tight bounds on the maximum number of shortest unique substrings, 28th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching, CPM 2017, 2017.07, 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.. |
