Abstract

Given a set of n binary strings of length m each. We consider the problem of answering d-queries. Given a binary query string a of length m, a d-query is to report if there exists a string in the set within Hamming distance α of α. We present a data structure of size O(nm) supporting 1-queries in time O(m) and the reporting of all strings within Hamming distance 1 of α in time O(m). The data structure can be constructed in time O(nm). A slightly modified version of the data structure supports the insertion of new strings in amortized time O(m).
