Linear Bidirectional On-Line Construction of Affix Trees



Affix trees are a generalization of suffix trees that are based on the inherent duality of suffix trees induced by the suffix links. An algorithm is presented that constructs affix trees on-line by expanding the underlying string in both directions and that is the first known algorithm to do this with linear time complexity.
