Algorithms for shortest superstring questions

Given a set of finite words, the Overlap Graph (OG) is a complete weighted digraph where each word is a node and where the weight of an arc equals the length of the longest overlap of one word onto the other (Overlap is an asymmetric notion). The OG …

Merging words according to their overlap yields a superstring. This basic operation allows to infer long strings from a collection of short pieces, as in genome assembly. To capture a maximum of overlaps, the goal is to infer the shortest superstring …

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 …
