Books 




This is the third book in the Lothaire's series, following the volumes
``Combinatorics on Words'' and ``Algebraic Combinatorics on
Words'' already published. Available
at Cambridge
University Press since july,
2005
Its objective is to present in a unified manner the various applications of combinatorics on words. The application areas include core algorithms for text processing, natural language processing, speech processing, bioinformatics, and several areas of applied mathematics such as combinatorial enumeration and fractal analysis. The intended audience is the general scientific community. No special knowledge is needed, and familiarity with the application areas or with the material covered by the previous volumes is not required. In particular, the content, including problems and algorithms, is accessible to anyone working in the area of computer science. As
with the previous volumes,
this book is
written in collaboration by
a group of authors, under the guidance of the editors.
