Crochemore et al. gave in WABI 2017 an algorithm that from a set of input strings finds all pairs of strings that have Hamming distance at most a given threshold. The proposed algorithm first finds all long enough exact matches between the strings, and sorts these into pairs whose coordinates also match. Then the remaining pairs are verified for the Hamming distance threshold. The algorithm was shown to work in average linear time, under some constraints and assumptions.under some constraints and assumptions. We show that one can use the Positional Burrows-Wheeler Transform (PBWT) by Durbin (Bioinformatics, 2014) to directly find all exact matches whose coordinates also match. The same structure also extends to verifying the pairs for the Hamming distance threshold. The same analysis as for the algorithm of Crochemore et al. applies. As a side result, we show how to extend PBWT for non-binary alphabets. The new operations provided by PBWT find other applications in similar tasks as those considered here. (C) 2019 The Authors.

The longest common extension problem is to preprocess a given string of length n into a data structure that uses S(n) bits on top of the input and answers in T(n) time the queries LCE(i, j) computing the length of the longest string that occurs at both positions i and j in the input. We prove that the trade-off S (n)T (n) = (it logn) holds in the non-uniform cell-probe model provided that the input string is read-only, each letter occupies a separate memory cell, S(n) = Omega(n), and the size of the input alphabet is at least 2(8inverted right perpendicularS(n)/ninverted left perpendicular). It is known that this trade-off is tight. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
