Fast Bit-Parallel Matching for Network and Regular Expressions
Abstract. In this paper, we extend the SHIFT-AND approach by BaezaYates and Gonnet (CACM 35(10), 1992) to the matching problem for network expressions, which are regular expressions without Kleene-closure and useful in applications such as bioinformatics and event stream processing. Following the study of Navarro (RECOMB, 2001) on the extended string matching, we introduce new operations called Scatter, Gather, and Propagate to efficiently compute ε-moves of the Thompson NFA using the Extended SHIFT-AND approach with integer addition. By using these operations and a property called the bi-monotonicity of the Thompson NFA, we present an efficient algorithm for the network expression matching that runs in O(ndm/w) time using O(dm) preprocessing and O(dm/w) space, where m and d are the length and the depth of a given network expression, n is the length of an input text, and w is the word length of the underlying computer. Furthermore, we show a modified matching algorithm for the class ...
