Maximal repetitions in strings
The cornerstone of any algorithm computing all repetitions in strings of length n in O(n) time is the fact that the number of maximal repetitions (runs) is linear. Therefore, the most important part of the analysis of the running time of such algorithms is counting the number of runs. Kolpakov and Kucherov [FOCS'99] proved it to be cn but could not provide any value for c. Recently, Rytter [STACS'06] proved that c 5. His analysis has been improved by Puglisi et al. to obtain 3.48 and by Rytter to 3.44 (both submitted). The conjecture of Kolpakov and
