Consider context-free grammars generating strings over a one-letter alphabet. For the membership problem for such grammars, stated as “Given a grammar G and a string an, determine whether an is generated by G”, only a näıve O(|G| ·n2)-time algorithm is known. This paper develops a new algorithm solving this problem, which is based upon fast multiplication of integers, works in time |G| · n log n · 2O(log ∗ n), and is applicable to the more general conjunctive and Boolean grammars. The algorithm… CONTINUE READING
