AbstractThere are many stringmatching algorithms. The two main categories are, Exact string matching andapproximate string matching. Rabin-Karp is an exact string matching technique thatuses hashing for searching of string. It is an average case analysis of stringmatching algorithm.

Hashing is also known as finger print technique. Rabin Karpconverts these finger prints in constant time. This technique sum ASCII values for each and every letter and take modof this letter by some prime number. We say it a good hash function if it looksat every character in the string.

After the Calculationsdone with hash function, If the values appeared to be same then we need to donormal string comparison. If both the strings appeared to be same then thisresults in complete search. Next, calculate the hash value of next character,continue the process until the actual string is found. Or we reach to the endof text string.Keywords— hashing, ASCII, hash function.2. IntroductionRabin-Karpalgorithm is the most commonly used string matching algorithm.

In order to finda hash code pattern’pt’ from a given string ‘s’. first ofall, it divides the hash code pattern with a prime number ‘pr’ that is definedbefore to calculate the remainder of pattern ‘pt’. Then it takes input ‘l’.here ‘l’ is the length of pattern ‘pt’ from the string ‘s’ with the first shift’st’ to compute remainder of ‘l’ chracters from the string ‘s’. If theremainder of the pattern ‘pt’ and the remainder of the string ‘s’ are equal when we have comparison betweenthe string and pattern. In other cases there is no need of comparison. This isbecause if remainders are not equal to each other than these numbers will notbe equal in any case. This process is repeated for every next characters fromstring for all possible shifts.

Rabin-karp algorithm practical application isdetecting plagiarism. When source material is given, the algorithm caninstantaneously search through a given string. Ignoring the minor details likepunctuations. When good hashing is done, it results in good performance for theencountered data. Similarly if hashing is done poorly then the whole algorithmtakes the worst case time O(mn).FigureText t R A B I y A i y A Pattern pt Fig.1overview of string matchingRabinkarp string matching problem is the problem of finding all possible shifts withwhich it occurs in a given pattern.

Figure 1 shows this description.3. Literature reviewRabinkarp is the additional version of naïve approach by implementing a most powerprogramming technique called hash function.

Before the processing takes place itcalculates the hash value of pattern ‘pt’ (with length ‘l’) along with the hashvalue for each sub character. Next it compares numerical values instead ofcomparing the symbols. According to naïve approach, If any similarity is foundthan it compares the pattern with the substring. Or it shifts to next substringof ‘S’ with pattern ‘pt’ using the hash values. It shows that the performanceof Rabin karp algorithm depends on computation of hash values.

The string usedin the algorithm can be treated as array of characters. These characters can beconverted to integers or hash values depending upon what type of translatingtechnique is being used. Hence the string can be used as array of integers.LetL be a character sequence as a L digit number in base B. following equationssuch as equation1 can be used to find the substring where ti is the integer at ith position.Similarly equation 2 is used to compute a hash value of the substring where Pis the large prime number.

Ai=ti B^ (L–1) + ti+1 B^(L–2) + … + ti+L–1 R^ 0 EQ.1K(Ai)=ti B (L–1) + ti+1 B(L–2) + … + ti+L–1 B^ 0 (mod Q) EQ.2Moreover, aftercomputing Ai we can compute Ai+1 for the next substring ti+1 ..i+L inconstant time.xi+1 = ( xi – ti*BL–1 )B + t i + B To compute the hashvalue following equation can be given.A(xi+1)= ( xi – ti*BL–1 ) B + t i + B (mod Q) EQ.

1Time complexity of algorithm.Table1 shows the time complexity ofthe rabin karp algorithm.ExplanationWorking of hashfunction represents a string as a base b number. Where b is a constant thatrepresents the total number of characters. calculate the hash value of nextcharacter by shifting to next character. It is best to choose the prime number as large as possible which doesnot cause overflow. Hence the time period of hash function is much bigger than timecomplexity of normal flow algorithm.ImplementationNext step to naïveapproach is to move a level above to match a string by using the comparisons thatare being done in each iteration and making use of it in next iteration.

1. Firstlydefine the string of numbers only. Let S={0,…10}. After which pattern andstring are defined. Then these numbers are converted to characters. So nowthese are set of characters.2. Letpt defines the decimal value of pattern pt1,…l.

l represents the length ofthe pattern.3. Amajor problem that can occur is that the decimal values can cause over flow ifthey are large enough. Hence, modulus is computed by a large prime number.4. Rabinkarp worst case time complexity is O(m-(n-m+1)).

And best and average case timecomplexity is O (n+m) that makes it better approach of string matching. 5. Analysis and comparison with other algo’s solvingsame problem. Comparisons 1. KnuthMorris Pratt AlgorithmsKnuth morris prattalgorithm is a string searching algorithm that takes linear time for search. Atable of prefixes is build for the string that is to be searched before thestring matching phase starts.

The string matching starts with the left mostcharacter in the pattern. prefix table is build only for mismatch strings.ComplexityIt compares string fromleft to right. Before processing its time complexity is O(m) that assumes to belongest length time complexity of the string of chracters. Time complexity of searchingphase is O(n+m). total comparisons performed by knuth morris pratt algorithm is2n-1 that includes the searching phase and the delay.

2. BoyerMoore Horspool AlgorithmBoyer Moore algorithmperforms searching from right to left. It begins the comparison from right toleft. If string mismatches, two pre computed functions are designed to shiftthe string window to the right.

These sliding functions are called good suffixshift and bad character shift. This algorithm is the simplified form ofboyer-moore algorithm. The string that is to be searched is preprocessed tobuild a table that is designed for bad match occurrence.

It contain the lengththat shifts. It has values for every character in the string.Val=len-ind-1 EQ.5 By using shiftvaluesof table2. Eq.5 is used to calculate the values.

It starts comparing from left to right until a mismatch is found. This algorithmhas no separate preprocessing phase. It matches first character of pattern withfirst character of string.

If it does not match then it move towards the nextcharacter of the string and then compares second character of string with firstcharacter of pattern.if match is found than it compares second character ofpattern with the next character of the string.FigureText t R a B I Y a B i R a b i Y a b I R a b i Y a b i Fig.4 Brute force example AnalysisTime complexity Table Algorithm preprocessing Execution time Accuracy Knuth Morris Pratt O(M) O(M+N) 65% Brute Force None O(MN) 66.

Old algorithmstudiesThe time complexity of exact string pattern matchingcan be improved if the most efficient algorithm is used. String matchingalgorithms were studied with proteins and DNA of biological sequences. Afterthe analysis it was concluded that KMP algorithm is easier to implement becauseit does not back track the given sequence and consume extra space. Rabin karpalgorithm is used to check plagiarism that also requires additional space.Brute force does not require additional space or preprocessing. It is slow anddoes not produce efficient result.

BM algorithm is very fast for largesequences. It discard lots of unnecessary comparisons. Rasoolet.al (2012) had done a research which shows that KMP is moreefficient than Brute force algorithm.6.

Rabin karpis a great and effective algorithm. It has many advantages one of the bestadvantage is that it is used in multiple pattern matching. This makes it aperfect algorithm for large strings. Finding the correct text In today’s onlinescenario is most important thing in minimum time. String matching algorithmsare used for it. Work on software and hardware levels is being done to makepattern searching faster.

Approximately best algorithm is determined by applyingalgorithms in different applications. The best algorithm thus have less timecomplexity and reduced computation time. Algorithms may not be best optimalalgorithms but better than the general algorithms that are tested in variouspractical applications. From the study it is concluded that Rabin karp requiresextra space as it is used to detect plagiarism but brute force do not requirepreprocessing of the string. The only problem is it is very slow.

It sometimesproduces effective results. Additionally boyer moore algorithm is relativelyfaster for large strings as it avoids extra comparisons. 8. References1 AhmadFadel,” Towards Faster String Matching”. 2 S.
