The equidistant subsequence pattern matching problem is considered. Given a pattern string P and a text string T, we say that P is an equidistant subsequence of T if P is a subsequence of the text such that consecutive symbols of P in the occurrence are equally spaced. We can consider the problem of equidistant subsequences as generalizations of (sub-)cadences. We give bit-parallel algorithms that yield o(n2) time algorithms for finding k-(sub-)cadences and equidistant subsequences. Furthermore, O(n log2 n) and O(n log n) time algorithms, respectively for equidistant and Abelian equidistant matching for the case P = 3, are shown. The algorithms make use of a technique that was recently introduced which can efficiently compute convolutions with linear constraints. 2012 ACM Subject Classification Mathematics of computing !
