PhD Seminar • Algorithms and Complexity • The Maximum Number of Unbordered Conjugates Among Binary Words Export this event to calendar

Supervisor: Professor Jeffrey Shallit

A word is said to be \emph{bordered} if it contains a non-empty proper prefix that is also a suffix. Otherwise, it is said to be \emph{unbordered}. Two words $u$ and $v$ are said to be conjugates if they are cyclic shifts of each other. For example, the words {\tt eat} and {\tt ate} are conjugates. Using a decision procedure based on automatic sequences, we complete the classification, due to Harju and Nowotka, of binary words with the maximum number of unbordered conjugates. Furthermore, we prove that for every possible number, up to the maximum, there exists a word having that number of unbordered conjugates.
