Summary and Info
This volume contains the 22 papers accepted for presentation at the Third Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching held April 29 to May 1, 1992, in Tucson, Arizona; it constitutes the first conference proceedings entirely devoted to combinatorial pattern matching (CPM). CPM deals withissues of searching and matching of strings and other more complicated patterns such as trees, regular expressions, extended expressions, etc. in order to derive combinatorial properties for such structures. As an interdisciplinary field of growing interest, CPM is related to research in information retrieval, pattern recognition, compilers, data compression, and program analysis as well as to results, problems and methods from combinatorial mathematics and molecular biology.
