## What is suffix tree in algorithm?

Suffix tree is a compressed trie of all the suffixes of a given string. Suffix trees help in solving a lot of string related problems like pattern matching, finding distinct substrings in a given string, finding longest palindrome etc. Suffix Tree Construction (Brute Force) Brief description of Ukkonen’s Algorithm.

**How do you make a suffix tree?**

A naive algorithm to build a suffix tree

- Start at the root of N.
- Find the longest path from the root which matches a prefix of S[i+1..
- Match ends either at the node (say w) or in the middle of an edge [say (u, v)].

### Can the two edges that are coming out of a node in a suffix tree have labels of string beginning with the same character?

No two edges out of a node can have edge-labels beginning with the same character.

**Is trie a suffix tree?**

The trie is used to build the suffix tree and that is why most textbooks only provide code for tries.

## What are limitations of suffix trees?

Suffix tree

Idea: | store all suffixes of a string in a (compressed) trie |
---|---|

Advantages: | a very strong hammer for solving almost any stringology problem string matching: after a linear time precomputation, we can search pattern p in O(|p|) time |

Disadvantages: | very space-consuming; using a suffix array may be a better alternative |

**Do all nodes have atleast two children in suffix tree?**

Do all the nodes have at least two children in suffix tree. Explanation: It is a compressed search tree or prefix tree in which keys contain the suffix of text values as the text position. All the nodes (internal) except for the root nodes have at least two children.

### When did Ukkonen create the suffix tree algorithm?

Both my sample code and the descriptions that follow are based on Ukkonen’s work, published in the September 1995 issue of Algorithmica. For a given string of text, T, Ukkonen’s algorithm starts with an empty tree, then progressively adds each of the N prefixes of T to the suffix tree.

**Which is the best algorithm for suffix tree construction?**

Farach (1997) gave the first suffix tree construction algorithm that is optimal for all alphabets. In particular, this is the first linear-time algorithm for strings drawn from an alphabet of integers in a polynomial range.

## What can suffix trees do for a string?

Suffix tree is a compressed trie of all the suffixes of a given string. Suffix trees help in solving a lot of string related problems like pattern matching, finding distinct substrings in a given string, finding longest palindrome etc. In this tutorial following points will be covered:

**Which is the implicit suffix tree for s?**

Implicit suffix tree T i +1 is built on top of implicit suffix tree T i. The true suffix tree for S is built from T m by adding $. At any time, Ukkonen’s algorithm builds the suffix tree for the characters seen so far and so it has on-line property that may be useful in some situations.
