Algorithms for shortest superstring questions

Given a set P of words, the Shortest Linear Superstring (SLS) problem is an optimisation problem that asks for a superstring of P of minimal length. SLS has applications in data compression, where a superstring is a compact representation of P, and …

A superstring of a set of words $P = s_1, ..., s_p $ is a string that contains each word of P as substring. Given P, the well known Shortest Linear Superstring problem (SLS), asks for a shortest superstring of P. In a variant of SLS, called …

Covering a directed graph by a Hamiltonian path or a set of words by a superstring belong to well studied optimisation problems that prove difficult to approximate. Indeed, the Maximum Asymmetric Travelling Salesman Problem (Max-ATSP), which asks for …

Given a finite set of strings X, the Longest Common Subsequence problem (LCS) consists in finding a subsequence common to all strings in X that is of maximal length. LCS is a central problem in stringology and finds broad applications in text …

Speeding up approximate pattern matching is a line of research in stringology since the 80's. Practically fast approaches belong to the class of filtration algorithms, in which text regions dissimilar to the pattern are excluded (filtered out) in a …

The number of missing words (NMW) of length q in a text, and the number of common words (NCW) of two texts are useful text statistics. Knowing the distribution of the NMW in a random text is essential for the construction of so-called monkey tests …
