Stringology: Some classic and some modern problems

S. Muthukrishnan

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    We examine some of the classic problems related to suffix trees from 70's and show some recent results on sorting suffixes with small space and suffix selection. Further, we introduce modern versions of suffix sorting and their application to XML processing. The study of combinatorial aspects of strings continues to flourish, and we present several open problems with modern applications.
