Conversion from RLBWT to LZ77

LIPIcs-CPM-2019-9.pdf (0.6 MB)


Converting a compressed format of a string into another compressed format without an explicit decompression is one of the central research topics in string processing. We discuss the problem of converting the run-length Burrows-Wheeler Transform (RLBWT) of a string into Lempel-Ziv 77 (LZ77) phrases of the reversed string. The first results with Policriti and Prezza's conversion algorithm [Algorithmica 2018] were O(n log r) time and O(r) working space for length of the string n, number of runs r in the RLBWT, and number of LZ77 phrases z. Recent results with Kempa's conversion algorithm [SODA 2019] are O(n / log n + r log^{9} n + z log^{9} n) time and O(n / log_{sigma} n + r log^{8} n) working space for the alphabet size sigma of the RLBWT. In this paper, we present a new conversion algorithm by improving Policriti and Prezza's conversion algorithm where dynamic data structures for general purpose are used. We argue that these dynamic data structures can be replaced and present new data structures for faster conversion. The time and working space of our conversion algorithm with new data structures are O(n min{log log n, sqrt{(log r)/(log log r)}}) and O(r), respectively.
