Abstract
The string matching with mismatches problem is that
of finding the number of mismatches between pattern
P of length m and every length m substring of the
text T . Currently, the best algorithms for this problem
are the following. The Landau­Vishkin algorithm finds
all locations where the pattern has at most k errors
(where k is part of the input) in time O(nk). The
Abrahamson algorithm finds the number of mismatches
at every location in time O(n
p
m log m).
We present an algorithm that is faster than both.
Our algorithm finds all locations where the pattern has
at most k errors in time O(n
p
