To apply the GA approach to the problem of optimal product line design, we define each substring to represent one of K conjoint attributes.
However, we also pay attention to extensions such as generalized edit distance, transpositions and general substring substitution, as well as to simplifications such as LCS and Hamming distance.
(5) A compacted trie differs from a trie in that maximal branch-free paths are replaced by edges labeled by the appropriate substring.
This is natural-language processing software that builds up interpretations of larger and larger substrings of the input word list by always trying to combine the strongest substring interpretations found up to that point.
Observe that there is never confusion as to whether self-edges represent unbounded paths or are genuine edges; the distinct node restriction we have prevents a substring of the form n1,l1,n1 from appearing in the from-clause.
Self is defined as a set of equal-length strings (e.g., by logically segmenting the protected data into equal-size substrings), and each detector is defined as a string of the same length as the substring.
A more precise definition might be "Given a universe U identify all elements of U that contain a substring x matching a particular pattern r." For searching text, a simple universe U is some a priori set of strings - file names in a directory, lines in a file, or documents in a collection.
Line 6 uses a substring function to store the cost in a variable named $cost.
The payload signature is a unique and continuous substring within the traffic payload generated by the same application.
Select the substring: randomly generate two crossover points and define the substring between two points as matching area (i.e., yellow area).
If a context [t.sub.c] contains a delimiter symbol, a substring before the first delimiter symbol of [t.sub.c] is adjusted to a lowercase substring and extracted as a keyword of [p.sub.c], and the substring after the delimiter symbol is assigned as a new context of [p.sub.c].
If the similarity value between the two strings is zero, it means that they do not have any common substring [23].
