    The suffix array is a space-efficient data structure that provides fast access to all occurrences of a search pattern in a text. Typically suffix arrays are queried with algorithms based on binary search. With a pre-computed index data structure that provides fast access to the relevant suffix array interval, querying can be sped-up, because the binary search process operates over a smaller interval. In this thesis a number different ways of implementing such an index data structure are studied, and the performance of each implementation is measured. Our experiments show that with relatively small data structures, one can reduce suffix array query times by almost 50%. There is a trade-off between the size of the data structure and the speed-up potential it offers.
