Abstract

The present chapter describes a few standard algorithms used for processing texts. They apply, for example, to the manipulation of texts (text editors), to the storage of textual data (text compression), and to data retrieval systems. The algorithms of the chapter are interesting in different respects. First, they are basic components used in the implementations of practical software. Second, they introduce programming methods that serve as paradigms in other fields of computer science (system or software design). Third, they play an important role in theoretical computer science by providing challenging problems.
