Exact Analysis of Horspool's and Sunday's Pattern Matching Algorithms with Probabilistic Arithmetic Automata


We define deterministic arithmetic automata (DAAs) and connect them to a framework called probabilistic arithmetic automata (PAAs) [9]. We use DAAs and PAAs to compute the entire exact probability distribution (in contrast to, e.g., asymptotic expectation and variance) of the number X of text characters accessed by the Horspool or Sunday pattern matching… (More)
