How to Achieve an Equivalent Simple Permutation in Linear Time

The problem of Sorting signed permutations by reversals is a well studied problem in computational biology. The first polynomial time algorithm was presented by Hannenhalli and Pevzner in 1995 [5]. The algorithm was improved several times, and nowadays the most efficient algorithm has a subquadratic running time [9, 8]. Simple permutations played an… CONTINUE READING
