For decades Esko Ukkonen has performed a huge function within the development of machine technological know-how in Finland. He used to be the main individual within the improvement of the varsity of algorithmic learn and has contributed significantly to post-graduate schooling in his nation. Esko Ukkonen has through the years labored inside of many parts of desktop technology, together with numerical tools, complexity conception, theoretical facets of compiler building, and good judgment programming. notwithstanding, the main target of his study has been on algorithms and their functions. This Festschrift quantity, released to honor Esko Ukkonen on his sixtieth birthday, comprises 18 refereed contributions by way of his former PhD scholars and co-workers, with whom he has cooperated heavily in the course of the process his occupation. The Festschrift used to be provided to Esko in the course of a festive symposium prepared on the college of Helsinki to have fun his birthday. The essays essentially current study on computational trend matching and string algorithms, components that experience benefited considerably from the paintings of Esko Ukonen.

Baeza-Yates and A. Salinger or by a global precomputed ranking, to facilitate set operations between lists (derived from Boolean query operations), which is equivalent to the ordered case. In other settings, the lists of positions are sorted by frequency of occurrence in a document, to facilitate ranking based on the vector model [1,3]. The same happens with word positions in each file (full inversion to allow sentence searching). Therefore, the complexity of this problem is interesting also for practical reasons, as in search engines, partial lists can have hundreds of millions elements for very frequent words.

With a random sequence, one expects in principle that for k up to ≈ log n all |Σ|k k-mers occur, whence k-mers in this range grow exponentially with k. At the same time, the number of k-mers in a sequence of n characters is only O(n) for any fixed k, while the total number of distinct words of any length found in that sequence can be at most Θ(n2 ). Many of the sequence distances based on k-mer composition seem to indicate the existence of an optimum value of k. To test this fact, an extension [2] of the measure of [25] was developed which consists of a linear-time algorithm to compute composition vectors that include all (possibly Θ(n2 )) words in the input sequences up to any arbitrary maximum length K.

Springer, Heidelberg (1979) Maximal Words in Sequence Comparisons Based on Subword Composition Alberto Apostolico Georgia Institute of Technology & Universit` a di Padova Abstract. Measures of sequence similarity and distance based more or less explicitly on subword composition are attracting an increasing interest driven by intensive applications such as massive document classification and genome-wide molecular taxonomy. A uniform character of such measures is in some underlying notion of relative compressibility, whereby two similar sequences are expected to share a larger number of common substrings than two distant ones.
