A compressed self-index using a Ziv-Lempel dictionary
A compressed full-text self-index for a text T , of size u, is a data structure used to search for patterns P, of size m, in T , that requires reduced space, i.e. space that depends on the empirical entropy (Hk or H0) of T , and is, furthermore, able to reproduce any substring of T . In this paper we present a new compressed self-index able to locate the occurrences of P in O((m + occ) log u) time, where occ is the number of occurrences. The fundamental improvement over previous LZ78 based indexes is the reduction of the search time dependency on m from O(m2 ) to O(m). To achieve this result we point out the main obstacle to linear time algorithms based on LZ78 data compression and expose and explore the nature of a recurrent structure in LZ-indexes, the T78 suffix tree. We show that our method is very competitive in practice by comparing it against other state of the art compressed indexes.
