    We study the problem of identifying repetitions under transposition and time-warp invariances in polyphonic symbolic music. Using a novel onset-time-pair representation, we reduce the repeating pattern discovery problem to instances of the classical problem of finding the longest increasing subsequences. The resulting algorithm works in O(n(2) log n) time where n is the number of notes in a musical work. We also study windowed variants of the problem where onset-time differences between notes are restricted, and show that they can also be solved in O(n(2) log n) time using the algorithm.
