Fast and Deterministic Constant Factor Approximation Algorithms for LCS Imply New Circuit Lower Bounds


The Longest Common Subsequence (LCS) is one of the most basic similarity measures and it captures important applications in bioinformatics and text analysis. Following the SETHbased nearly-quadratic time lower bounds for LCS from recent years [4, 22, 5, 3], it is a major open problem to understand the complexity of approximate LCS. In the last ITCS [2] drew… (More)
