1. Vilca, Omar Latorre. Combinatorial Approaches for the Closest String Problem.

Degree: 2019, Universidade Federal do Amazonas

O problema da cadeia de caracteres mais pr?xima (do ingl?s Closest String Problem CSP) que surge na bioinform?tica e na criptografia ? encontrar uma cadeia de caracteres que minimize a maior dist?ncia de Hamming de um determinado conjunto de cadeias de caracteres, o CSP ? um problema NP-dif?cil. O principal objetivo deste trabalho ? propor m?todos exatos para este problema, para esse fim, caracterizamos casos especiais para esse problema com ?nfase no n?mero de strings. At? agora, nossa contribui??o ?: algoritmos de tempo linear para o CSP com at? tr?s strings e para quatro strings bin?rias, al?m de um algoritmo guloso heur?stico e um algoritmo exato recursivo para o caso geral. Al?m disso, para cada algoritmo proposto ser?o apresentadas provas formais de corretude, tamb?m experimentos num?ricos mostrar?o a efic?cia dos algoritmos propostos.

The closest string problem (CSP) that arises in computational molecular biology and coding theory is to find a string that minimizes the maximum Hamming distance from a given set of strings, the CSP is an NP-hard problem. The main aim of this work is to propose exact methods for this problem, for this purpose, we characterize special cases for this problem with emphasis in the number of strings. Until now our contribution is: linear-time algorithms for CSP with up to three strings and for four binary strings, in addition to an heuristic greedy algorithm and a recursive exact algorithm for CSP for the general case. Furthermore, for each proposed algorithm formal proofs will be presented, also numerical experiments will show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.
