N2 - The Prefix Matching Problem is to determine, for each location in the text t, the longest prefix of a given pattern p which occurs beginning at that location. We present two work-optimal parallel algorithms for this problem. The first algorithm works for the case when the characters in p and t are drawn from an alphabet set of size polynomial in m + n, where m = |p| and n = |t|; it takes O(log m) time, O(m1+ε+n1+ε) space, and does O(m + n) work, for any ε>0. The second algorithm works for unbounded alphabet sets and takes O(log2m(log log m)3) time, O(m + n) space, and does O(m + n) work. These are the first known work-optimal algorithms for this problem.
