|Abstract:||Recent research in compressing suffix arrays has resulted in two breakthrough indexing data structures, namely, compressed suffix arrays (CSA)  and FM-index . Either of them makes it feasible to store a full-text index in the main memory even for a piece of text data with a few billion characters (such as human DNA). However, constructing such indexing data structures with limited working memory (i.e., without constructing suffix arrays) is not a trivial task. This paper addresses this problem. Currently, only CSA admits a space-efficient construction algorithm . For a text T of length n over an alphabet Ó, this algorithm requires O(|∑|n log n) time and (2Ho + 1 + ε)n bits of working space, where Ho is the 0-th order empirical entropy of T and ε is any non-zero constant. This algorithm is good enough when the alphabet size |∑| is small. It is not practical for text data containing protein, Chinese or Japanese, where the alphabet may include up to a few thousand characters. The main contribution of this paper is a new algorithm which can construct CSA in O(n log n) time using (Ho + 2 + ε)n bits of working space. Note that the running time of our algorithm is independent of the alphabet size and the space requirement is smaller as it is likely that Ho > 1. This paper also makes contribution to the space-efficient construction of FM-index. We show that FM-index can indeed be constructed from CSA directly in O(n) time. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2003.|
