Abstract

A pattern is a word consisting of constants from an alphabet Sigma of terminal symbols and variables from a set X. Given a pattern alpha, the decision-problem whether a given word w may be obtained by substituting the variables in \alpha for words over Sigma is called the matching problem. While this problem is, in general, NP-complete, several classes of patterns for which it can be efficiently solved are already known. We present two new classes of patterns, called k-local, and strongly-nested, and show that the respective matching problems, as well as membership can be solved efficiently for any fixed k.
